Mather to Address Students, 
Faculty on "Horizon People" 

Horizon People will be the subject 
of the address to be delivered by Pro- 
vost Jean-Paul Mather when the en- 
tire student and faculty body assem- 
bles in the Cage at 11:00 on Thurs- 
day morning for the opening Convo- 
cation of the school year. 

The talk will deal with the revis- 
ions and new plans to be made in 
the educational policies of the Uni- 
versity. Provost Mather has been 
working diligently since last Spring 
toward developing a comprehensive 
system for improving the standards — 
facilities, instruction, curriculum 
changes, required courses — of the U 
of M, and will report to us on his 
progress in that vein. # 

For a frame, Mr. Mather plans to 
use the Educational Policies Council, 
organized in 1945, to study his pro- 
posals and integrate them into the 
already existing schedule of the Uni- 
versity. The Council, which has lapsed 
into a board dealing with administra- 
tive problems in recent years, will be 
revamped to cope with the education- 
al difficulties confronting the school 
at this time. 

The purpose of the Council, restat- 
ed, will be to "study and act upon 
questions and proposals having to do 
with the policies and effectiveness of 
the educational program of the in- 
dividual Schools, Colleges, and Divi- 
sions of the University. This council 

Air Force ROTC 
Budget Cut; 
Keeps Seniors 

To clear up the confusion in the 
Air Force ROTC program created by 
changes in world conditions over the 
summer, Lt. Col. Pratt, PAST, an- 
nounced today the program to be fol- 
lowed here and and at all other col- 
leges where AFROTC is offered. 

Reduction In The Budget 

The reason for the sharp decrease 
in the number of students selected for 
advanced training was caused by the 
reduction in the budget granted by 
Congress to the Ail force. Whereas 
145 wings had been planned for the 
future, the Air Force will now be re- 
duced to an interim strength of 120 
wings. What this means to the stu- 
dent is that now fewer ROTC grad- 
uates are needed and fewer adminis- 
trative officers are required, the ma- 
jority of commissions being granted 
to flying personnel. 

All the present seniors will be al- 
lowed to remain in the program if

Regulation Boards Established — 
Re-organization Ends Student Life; 

Academic Activities Board Also Out 

by Joe Crosby 

The powerful and important Student Life Committee and 

Academic Activities Board have been abolished in the Trustees 

recent administrative committee re-organization. They have been 

replaced by several new groups upon recommendations by Provost 

Jean P. Mather. 

A Committee on Recognized Student Organizations and a 

Committee on Student Social Activi- 
ties have both been established and 
will begin operation as soon as the 
personnel is chosen for these groupp. 
The first, on student organizations, 
mainly replaces the Academic Activ- 
ities Board but does more since it 
has jurisdiction over all organizations 
while the old group handled only ttie 
music, dramatic and publication 
groups. This group also replaces the 
Student Government Finunce and Ac- 
tivities committees and absorbs their 
functions. This group will make reg- 
ulations, administer finances and of- 
fer advice and assistance to the many 
campus activities and act as an ad- 
visory board to the President on all 
matters concerning these groups. It 
is to be composed of ten faculty and 
13 student members, the former chos- 
en by the president while the latter 
will be picked by the President of 
the Student Government. The student 
members will l»e the entire member- 
ship of the Senate Finance Commit- 
tee plus others chosen both from the 
Senate and the student body at large. 

The other group, on social activi- 
ties, mainly replaces the Student Life 
Committee but has jurisdiction only 
over a part part of the field eovered 
by this now extinct committee. Where 
the Student Life covered all social 
activities, the new group will rule 
and recommend only on social func- 
tions of a temporary or transient na- 
ture. This will not include the social 
regulations concerning fraternities 
and sororities but only campus danc- 
es, receptions, teas and parties. This 
group will also have joint represent- 
ation of faculty members appointed 
by President Van Meter and student 
members designated by the President 
of the Senate.

As the present Secretary of the 
Alumni Association, Leavitt plans to: 

1. '"Organize Alumni groups in all 
sections of the state and in any sec- 
tion of the country where there are 
enough Alumni to make this feas- 
ible." He has ai ready made eonsider- 
able progress in Boston and in Wash- 
ington, D. C. 

l' . "Familiarize undergraduates 

with the important nen on campus. 
In the near future the Alumni As- 
tion will begin conducting a pro- 
gram called 'Meet The Brass*. It 
will give these students an opportun- 
ity to be introduced to the deans and 
t" other men who hold important 
positions "it campus. 

8. "Maintain informative

I'ershaps the most evident results 
of the Alumni Association is the 
change in the Alumni Bulletin. Start- 
in September the publication will be 
renamed The Massachusetts Alum-

Among all these words, in the midst

the key to all this, the meaning of 
it all, the purpose for your educa-

The man who wrote the above per- 
sonalized the Word. For him and for 
millions since, the Word which gave 
meaning to life was a person, a di- 
vine person, a person who was con- 
cerned in creation for the man who

At midnight on the clock a new day begins. 

When the clock bell in the Old Chapel sends the 12 bongs of 
midnight circling- outward on an average weekday a majority of 
the more than 6000 members of this academic community prob-

■one hour's sleep before midnight is worth three after," as George 
Herbert (1503-1632) said. How many let the start of a new day 
go unnoticed on an average weokday, however, is a question for 
which no precise information is available.

To the Editor: 

I should like to let you know how 
much I truly appreciated the honor 
which you have given me by naming 
me to your "M" Page. 

The honor came as a surprise and 
a thrill. Had I done the kind of a 
job I wanted to do in my undertak- 
ings the surprise would have been 
less. I've made more than my share 
of "foul-ups" both in WMUA and 
Adelphia and any success the organ- 
izations enjoyed was because they 
were fortunate enough to have mem- 
bers whose abilities are superior to 
my own. 

I'leuse do not feel that I am 
prompted to say these things because 
of some sense of false modesty. I am 
only saying that which is evident. 

I am however proud that I've had 
such a good opportunity during my 
4 years on campus to contribute to 
the life of the University community. 
You know how it makes you feel in- 
side, because you're doing the same 
thing yourself. 

At any rate, at least we've tried. 

Thank you again and congratula- 
tions on your other choices.

The clock bell in Old Chapel puts 
on its most impressive performance 
at midnight, as at high noon. It is 
run, as are exactly 95 other clocks on 
campus, according to Chief Engine >r 
David, by a master clock in the power 
plant. This master clock also rings 
the class bells at 10 minutes of tne 
hour and on the hour. 

Story of Chime 
The chime in the Chapel steeple 
that keeps company with the clock 
bell is a story in itself. It consists of 
10 hells to a layman, and 12 bells to 
a musician — because two of the bells 
can be made to give two different 
tones. The chime has been a campus 
feature for the past 16 years. 

It was a gift to the University by 
Bernard H. Smith, a graduate in th-> 
class of 1899, who became president 
of the Virginia Dare Extract Co., and 
who died this past year. Mr. Smith 
gave the chime in memory of a fellow 
member of the class of 1899, Warren 
E. Hinds, who received a Ph.D. de- 
gree here in 1902, and who was a 
distinguished entomologist until his 
death on Jan. 11, 1936. The chime was 
installed in 1937. An inspection re 
vealed that one of the hells bears the

The ten bells in the chime vary in 

weight from 225 to 2000 pounds. The 

Collegian could not determine the cost 

of the chime, but Professor Doric Al- 

viani estimated that it would cost 

about $40,000 today.

aid to existing schools, according to 
the second preliminary report of the 
commission today. Such state aid 
would require a constitutional! amend- 

In addition, 23 percent of the doc- 
tors replying to the questionnaire 
favored a state-sponsored first class 
medical-dental school. The question* 
naires were sent to X7N7 physicians. 

The commission reported that 689 
of the doctors replying know of 1K99 
students from their communities 
whom they considered qualified, but 
who have been denied entrance to a 
medical school. 

The commission survey also point* 
«'d up that there are relatively few 
general practitioners in rural areas 
on a population basis. It showed that 
four percent of the (IP's are in rural 
communities while 16 per cent of 
the population is there.

students for playing the chime, but 
today it is a sort of unofficial extra- 
curricular activity. Whether it U ath- 
letic or academic is debatable. 
11 Steps In Ladder 

If you watched the players push 
down on the wooden levers that con- 
trol the clappers on the bells, you 
would probably say athletic. This ex- 
ercise, plus the vibrations of tho bellsj 
plus the climb up the 11 ladder steps 
in the Chapel steeple, make the play- 
ing a wholesome job. It is unheal' d 
up there too. 

A chief reward of this activity, 
however, is an ability to toss in a 
song, such as the recent "Doggie in 
the Window", to liven up the standard 
assortment of college songs, hymns 
and other more usual tunes which 
brighten up the day for most hearers. 

Chime players are selected by Dor-

ized as 1) flying, 2) technical (engi- 
neers, scientists, etc.), 'A) general 
non-flying. After graduation, a part 
of the clasH will receive commissions 
(mostly flying personnel), while the 
remainder will receive "certificates of 
completion" of the advanced course. 
This group is eligible for the draft, 
hut can apply for a commission after 
completion of the enlistment period 
required under the present draft law. 

The situation for juniors is the 
same as the seniors. After the neces- 
sary pruning in the non-flying group, 
similar procedure will be followed in 
awarding commissions and certifi- 
•ates of completion. 

Freshman Status 

Those freshmen physically qualified 
and desirous of flying are encouraged 
to pursue the Air Force ROTC pro- 
gram and have been enrolled in the 
AFROTC insofar as quota limitations 
permit. As the U of M is a land- 
grant college, all freshmen and soph- 
omores are required to complete two 
years of military training in either 
the Air Force or Army ROTC.

The chime is played after football 
games, win or lose. But the clock bell 
tolls only when we win. 

44 Phones On Campus 

The clock bell has little competition 
at midnight. According to the North- 
ampton office of the telephone com- 
pany, there were in March 435 tele- 
phone extensions on the 900 line, plus 
11 extra bells and gongs on this same 
line to take care of such needs as 
farm buildings and machine shops 
where gongs are needed, and approx- 
imately 39 outside lines, including pay 
stations, and the sorority and f rater 
nity telephones. 

But most of these bells, like the 
class bells, are quiet when the new 
day begins. So too are the 3791 alarm 
clocks (a Collegian estimate based on 
one alarm clock per student) that us- 
ually set up their brazen shouts about 
7:30 a.m. 

At midnight — at least on the sur- 
face — all is usually quiet. The sounds 
that circle out from the Chapel iteeple 
can usually be heard about a mile 
a way.

The University of Massachusetts 
Operetta Guild has become the first 
collegiate group in the East to ob- 
tain performance rights for a Rodgers 
and Hammerstein musical. 

Director Doric Alviani announced 
that the Guild will present five per- 
formances of "Carousel" on next Mar. 
8, 9, 11, 12, and 13. 

"Carousel" opened in Boston rn 
1946 The show has a New England 
setting and is based on Molnar's play, 
"Liliom." It proved to be one of the 
Rodgers and Hammerstein's greatest 
hits, running for three years on 

Casting for the show will start as 
soon as college opens this month. 

Professor Alviani state that obtain- 
ing rights for production of a Rod- 
eers and Hammerstein musical was 
signal honor for the Operetta Guild. 
Clippings of reviews of previous 
Guild productions were submitted to 
attorneys for Rodgers and Hammer- 
stein and were instrumental in secur- 
ing the rights. 

"Carousel" will give an unparalled 
opportunity for UM students to par- 
ticipate in one of the top artistic ve- 
hicles in the contemporary theatre , 
Professor Alviani said. 

Rodgers and Hammerstein them- 
selves are the most successful com- 
poser-librettist team of modern times. 
Their other works include "South Pa- 
cific", "Oklahoma", and "The King

Three weeks of practice, and still no quarterback is Coach 
Charlie O'Rourke's problem as the Redmen go into their last week 
of practice before their opening tilt with Bates at Lewiston this 

Coach O'Rourke has been alternating between Frank McDer- 
mott, Steve O'Brien, Frank Jacques and Barry Gildea in an at- 
tempt to find a replacement for quar- 
terback left by the graduation of Noel 
Reebenacker who was second in the 
country in passing last year. 

With Little All- American Tony 
Chambers back, Coach O'Rourke 
needs someone who can throw a pass 
somewhere near this speedy end. 
Some of Tony's nearly impossible 
catches last year will be long remem- 

Naida, Captain 
Captain Walt Naida leads the list 
of 18 returning lettermen which will 
make up the nucleus of the 1953 ver- 
sion of the Redmen. Naida started as 
a defensive center last year, but after 
three games, line coach Chet Glad- 
chuk had him play both ways. For 
the remainder of the season, Naida 
played nearly CO minutes of every 

Other linemen that Coach O'Rourke 
will be counting heavily upon will be 
Al Gilmore, Lou Kirsch and Don Mac- 
Phee who will make a rugged for- 
ward wall to open holes in the ene- 
my's line. Brian Gorman, Larry Ber- 
lin, Jordan Chatis and Bill Connolly 
also are expected to see much action 
in the line. 

Many Backs 
Coach O'Rourke is blessed with a 
multitude of backs with his problem 
being who is to start. The fight for 
starting position at fullback appears 
at this writing to be between Red 
Porter a junior and John Hassell, a 
sophomore who starred on last falls 
frosh eleven. 

A number of speedy halfbacks are 
fighting for starting positions includ- 
ing seniors — Bill Rex, Charlie Red- 
men, Buster DiVincenzo and Joe 
Phclan. Besides these seniors, Coach 
O'Rourke has a number of speedy 
halfbacks up from last fall's frosh 
eleven who might well break into the 
starting lineup. Leading the sopho- 
more contingent are Hal Bowers and 
Jerry Walls both outstanding track- 
men who should provide the Redmen 
hackfield with speed. Other sopho- 
mores expecting to see action at the 
1 halfback slot are Don Hallet, Don 
_ Johnson and Dick Mallon. 

All-American Tony Chambers will 
hold down the left end situation ca- 
pably. The fight for right end is be- 
tween Tom Ashe, Vic Bissonnette and 
Dick Torchia. 

The 1953 football schedule of the 
Redmen is as follows:

The Yankee Conference football 
season opens Saturday when the Univ. 
of Rhode Island at Kingston, to 
launch their quest of the coveted Bean 
Pot currently shared by three institu- 
tions following last year's unprece- 
dented triple tie in the conference 
grid race. 

Maine, Connecticut and Rhode Is- 
land each lost one conference game 
last fall to finish in a dead heat, the 
first triple tie in six years of con 
ference competition, but at least five 
teams are accorded a chance to bring 
the Bean Pot to the trophy room in 
the 1953 campaign. 

Rhody Favored 

Rhode Island with a veteran team, 
spearheaded by Pat Abbruzzi, who 
broke all conference ground gaining 
records in 1952 as a sophomore, is 
farnkly regarded as the team to beat. 
But Connecticut and Maine have a 
solid nucleus of veterans while New 
Hampshire and Massachusetts are 
optimistic with a likely crop of sopho- 
mores in the fold. Vermont is also 
moving back into the football lime- 
light and there is a fonfirmed feeling 
above Lake Champlain that the Cata- 
mounts will soon be ready to make 
another bid for conference honors. 

For the first time in six year3, there 
are no new faces in the head coaching 
ranks, where the turnover has been 
so consistent that New Hampshire's 
Chief Boston, starting his fifth year 
on the job at Durham, is the oldest 
coach in point of service. 

Hal Westerman is back at Maine, 
where he had a<n undefeated season 
two years ago; Hal Kopp is the toast 
of Rhode Island after last fall's 7-1 
season; Charlie O'Rourke is in solid 
at Massachusetts after a fine fresh- 
man year in 1952; Bob Ingalls is 
starting his second year as head man 
at Connecticut; and Ed Donnelly re- 
turns to Vermont, where his Green 
and Gold entry broke a long losing 
streak to win two games last fall and 
start the long trail back. 

7th Season 

In six years of formal competition 
New Hampshire has won three out- 
right conference crowns, with unde- 
feated teams in 11)47 and 1950.

Kedmen Band and Drill Team. ^__ 1_ 

The University of Massachusetts 
Operetta Guild has become the first 
collegiate group in the East to ob- 
tain performance rights for a Rodgers 
and Hammerstein musical. 

Director Doric Alviani announced 
that the Guild will present five per- 
formances of "Carousel" on next Mar. 
8, 9, 11, 12, and 13. 

"Carousel" opened in Bo3ton in 
1945. The show has a New England 
setting and is based on Molnar's play, 
"Liliom." It proved to be one of the 
Rodgers and Hammerstein's greatest 
hits, running for three years on 

Casting for the show will start as 
soon as college opens this month. 

Professor Alviani state that obtain- 
ing rights for production of a Rod- 
gers and Hammerstein musical was 
signal honor for the Operetta Guild. 

Clippings of reviews of previous 
Guild productions were submitted to 
attorneys for Rodgers and Hammer- 
stein and were instrumental in secur- 
ing the rights. 

"Carousel" will give an unparalle.i 
opportunity for UM students to par- 
ticipate in one of the top artistic ve- 
hicles in the contemporary theatre", 
Professor Alviani said. 

Rodgers and Hammerstein them- 
selves are the most successful com- 
poser-librettist team of modern times. 
Their other works include "South Pa- 
cific", "Oklahoma", and "The King 
and I".

New Uniforms 
This Season 

The Re bean Marching Band will

at the first h"mc game Oct. S, at the 
Alumni Field. Direct.. r of Bands 
Joseph Contino has announced that

the collar, sleeve and pockets. White 
buck shoe .. maro.n and white trous- 
ers, and maroon ties and socks will

Originally desi'ned as a double- 
purpose uniform, it will also function 
as formal dress for the Concert Band. 
The six majorettes, headed this 
year by Joan Tonka, '54, will boast 
new white corduroy uniforms with 
trim in Indian motif. 

The program of performances for 
the Concert Band this year includes 
three campus appearances, a joint 
home-and-away concert with the 
Univ. of Conn. Band, a Spring Tour

Since 1947, this group has estab- 
lished an enviable reputation for its 
unique manner of presenting a care- 
fully selected program of various 
types of choral music. 

While the greatest number of ap- 
pearances during the past years have 
been in concert and radio, the Chor- 
ale, a singing group, entered the mu- 
sical theater field last spring by pre 
senting two performances of the mu- 
sical play "Lost in the Stars," which 
won acclaim from the critics. In a pe- 
riod of six years the Chorale has 
sung to approximately 50,000 persona, 
and for countless thousands through 
he nationwide network of the Mutual 
Broacasting System. 

Bach member is expected to be 
prompt at all rehearsals, departures, 
and appointments, memorize all mu- 
sic assigned for the various programs, 
maintain a good scholastic record, 
good personal conduct, keep physical- 
ly fit, take pride in high standards 
of performance, sing at all times vig- 
orously and intensely, respect his fel- 

Operetta Guild performance, travel a 
number of one night stands and some 
two day tours, and furnish a uniform 
for conceits. 

The Chorale is a self supporting 
organization and "earns" its way and 
existance. A Booster Concert may be 
held this year for the Chorale Fund. 

Intercollegiate Band Here 

The New England Intercolleg-

O'Rourke Still Looking For QB 
As Redmen Prep For Bobcats 

by Al Shumway 

Three weeks of practice, and still no quarterback is Coach 
Charlie O'Rourke's problem as the Redmen go into their last week 
of practice before their opening tilt with Bates at Lewiston this 

Coach O'Rourke has been alternating between Frank McDer- 
mott, Steve O'Brien, Frank Jacques and Barry Gildea in an at- 
tempt to find a replacement for quar- 
terback left by the graduation of Noel 
Reebenacker who was second in the 
country in passing last year. 

With Little Ail-American Tony 
Chambers back, Coach O'Rourke 
needs someone who can throw a pass 
somewhere near this speedy end. 
Some of Tony's nearly impossible 
catches last year will be long remem- 

Naida, Captain 

Captain Walt Naida leads the list 
of 18 returning lettermen which will 
make up the nucleus of the 1953 ver- 
sion of the Redmen. Naida started as 
a defensive center last year, but after 
three games, line coach Chet Glad- 
chuk had him play both ways. For 
the remainder of the season, Naida 
played nearly GO minutes of every 

Other linemen that Coach O'Rourke 
will be counting heavily upon will be 
Al Gilmore, Lou Kirsch and Don Mac- 
Phee who will make a rugged for- 
ward wall to open holes in the ene- 
my's line. Brian Gorman, Larry Ber- 
lin, Jordan Chatis and Bill Connolly 
also are expected to see much action 
in the line. 

Many Backs 

Coach O'Rourke is blessed with a 
multitude of backs with his problem 
being who is to start. The fight for 
starting position at fullback appears 
at this writing to be between Red 
Porter a junior and John Hassell, a 
sophomore who starred on last falls 
frosh eleven. 

A number of speedy halfbacks are 
righting for starting positions includ- 
ing seniors — Bill Rex, Charlie Red- 
men, Buster DiVincenzo and Joe 
Phelan. Besides these seniors, Coach 
O'Rourke has a number of speedy 
halfbacks up from last fall's frosh 
eleven who might well break into the 
starting lineup. Leading the sopho- 
more contingent are Hal Bowers and 
Jerry Walls both outstanding track- 
men who should provide the Redmen 
hackfield with speed. Other sopho- 
mores expecting to see action at the 
halfback slot are Don Hallet, Don 
Johnson and Dick Mallon. 

All-American Tony Chambers will 
hold down the left end situation ca- 
pably. The fight for right end is be- 
tween Tom Ashe, Vic Bissonnette and 
Dick Torchia.

The Yankee Conference football 
season opens Saturday when the Univ. 
of Rhode Island at Kingston, to 
launch their quest of the coveted Bean 
Pot currently shared by three institu- 
tions following last year's unprece- 
dented triple tie in the conference 
grid race. 

Maine, Connecticut and Rhode Is- 
land each lost one conference game 
last fall to finish in a dead heat, the 
first triple tie in six years of con 
ference competition, but at least five 
teams are accorded a chance to bring 
the Bean Pot to the trophy room in 
the 1953 campaign. 

Rhody Favored 

Rhode Island with a veteran team, 
spearheaded by Pat Abbruzzi, who 
broke all conference ground gaining 
records in 1952 as a sophomore, is 
farnkly regarded as the team to beat. 
But Connecticut and Maine have a 
solid nucleus of veterans while New 
Hampshire and Massachusetts are 
optimistic with a likely crop of sopho- 
mores in the fold. Vermont is also 
moving back into the football lime- 
light and there is a fonfirmed feeling 
above Lake Champlain that the Cata- 
mounts will soon be ready to make 
another bid for conference honors. 

For the first time in six years, there 
are no new faces in the head coaching 
ranks, where the turnover has been 
so consistent that New Hampshire's 
Chief Boston, starting his fifth year 
on the job at Durham, is the oldest 
coach in point of service. 

Hal We3terman is back at Maine, 
where he had an undefeated season 
two years ago; Hal Kopp is the toast 
of Rhode Island after last fall's 7-1 
season; Charlie O'Rourke is in solid 
at Massachusetts after a fine fresh- 
man year in 1952; Bob Ingalls is 
starting his second year as head man 
at Connecticut; and Ed Donnelly re- 
turns to Vermont, where his Green 
and Gold entry broke a long losing 
streak to win two games last fall and 
start the long trail back. 

7th Season 

In six years of formal competition 
New Hampshire has won three out- 
right conference crowns, with unde- 
feated teams in l'J4T and 1950.

Miss Mary A. Maher, Director of 
the Bingham-Kellogg Boston Univer- 
sity Regional Nursing Program will 
liegin her duties this Sept. as Head 
and Director of the school. 

Presently qualified sophomores will 
not be able to enroll in the Division 
of Nursing here unless they plan to 
extend their program of studies be- 
yond the usual four years. Two alter- 
natives are offered: 1) They can 
transfer to some other institution 
with a collegiate nursing program to 
continue their studies in the fall of 
1954. or 2) They may extend their 
program over four years by inter- 
rupting their studies for a year after 
which they may return to the pro- 
gram directly related to nursing. 

The present freshmen will be able 
to take their courses here in the 
normal time, since by the fall of 1954 
there will be an adequate curriculum 
and nursing faculty on the campus. 

Preliminary arrangements will also 
be made during this year to provide 
the clinical experience in hospitals, 
nursing schools, and public health 
agencies to supplement the resident 
instruction. An internship, in addi- 
tion to the four years of undergrad- 
uate academic work is anticipated. 

The immediate objectives of this 
program are toward the development 
of a basic nursing education program 
leading toward the baccalaureate de- 
gree, and eligibility for certification 
as registered nurses up on comple- 
tion of state board exams. 

Inquiries regarding the basic 
School should be made to Miss Mary

A new system for "queuing up" 
in University Boarding Halls, de- 
signed especially for the new Com- 
mons, will be used this year accord- 
ing to Walter Johnson, head of the 
Dining Halls. 

The system will work this way: all 
tickets will have a number between 
one and five. Those students living 
in Lewis, Thatcher and Berkshire 
Houses will be number one; those in 
Leach, Crabtree and Middlesex, num- 
ber two; those in Abby, Knowlton, 
Hamlin and Plymouth, number three; 
those in Greenough, Baker and 
Brooks, number four; and those in 
Butterfield, Chadboume and Mills, 
number five. 

For the present, until the new 
Commons is done, Draper Hall will 
be used. Those in group one will eat 
in the Annex; those in groups two 
and three in the main hall; those in 
group four, at Greenough; and those 
in group five, at Butterfield. 

When the Commons is finally fin- 
ished group one will eat in the north 
dining room, group two, in the north- 
west hall and group three, in the 
southwest hall. 

Students will be assigned to these 
places, according to Mr. Johnson, and 
they will be the only places where 
they can get their food on the tickets 
they hold. Cards must be shown and 
are not transferable. 

There will be only the regular 
three meals per day tickets issued 
and no separate tickets for break- 
fast. The dining halls will operate on 
a five day basis with Sunday dinner 
in Draper Hall on a cash basis, Mr 
Johnson said.

i show of mass, infectious spirit as 
hey competed with each other in boi-

At every opportunity the dorms 
jellowed ear-shattering rolls of

"Modern America's 
Man of Music" Will 
Strike Downbeats 

As a bonus to the students of the 
University, the Conceit Association 
is going tO make the concert series 
ticket valid for another jrreat first 
in presentations to the campus. Stan 
Kenton, the nation's foremost ex- 
ponent of a new style of music, will 
appear in the Cage on Mon., Oct. 
5 at eight o'clock. 

Yes, once again Democracy has 
popped up in the programming of 
the musical organizations. This time 
it is connected with the Concert Asso- 
! ciation. Last year's popularity poll 
revealed that Stan Kenton, "Modern 
i America's Man of Music", topped the 
list of request performances. Consid- 
ering the Executive Board's obligation 
to the student body and the desire 
to feature all types of music in its 
concert season, the Hoard succeeded 
in obtaining Kenton for this date 
sometime late in the summer. 

Kenton, long time Capital record- 
ing star, has often indicated his be- 
lief in the new developments of mod- 
ern music, and has set the pace in 
new discoveries in his complex art. 

A 20 piece Kenton orchestra will 

piiseiit a program that reflects this 

philosophy ami will demonstrate to its 

audience Democracy in Music and 

."Artistry in Rhythm".

"We have no right in a public in- 
stitution to set up academic or finan- 
cial road blocks that will keep at 
least a comparable portion of th? 
coming generations from the educa- 
tional heritage granted to you." 

Thus Provost Mather, in addressing 
a large body of students and faculty 
members at the opening convocation 
of the 90th academic year held in the 
cage on Thursday, Sept. 24, pointed 
out the obligations of this university 
to meet the educational requirements 
of the large number of students mov- 

our responsibility is that \v<- eaiUI >'

Unless a long ranee development 
program is started now to meet the 
future needs of the Commonwealth, 
I'rovost Mather estimates that by 
IMS eight out of nine applicants will 
be turned away. 

In the text of his speech the pro- 
vost stressed that it was the job of 
the university to turn out "horizon 
people"; people who ask why, who 
think of tomorrow as a product of

Planned For Nov. 

The Law School Admission Test

to a number of leading American law 
schools will be given at more than 
100 centers throughout the US on the 
mornings of Nov. 14, If63, Feb. SO, 
Apr. 10, and Aug. 7, 1954, 

A candidate must make separate 
application for admission to each law- 
school of his choice and should inquire 
of each whether it wishes him to 
take the Law School Admission Test 
and when. Since many law schools se- 
lect their freshmen classes in the 
spring preceding their entrance, can- 
didates for admission to next year's 
classes are advised to take the Nov. 
or Feb. test, if possible. 

Sample questions and information

Freshmen Get Chance to Cheat 
Themselves of Representation 

The freshmen have a golden chance to cheat themselves out 
of rightful representation in the Student Senate. 

In a referenda passed by the student body on April 27 of lasl 
year, an amendment to the Student Government Constitution pro- 
vided that "Each Freshman Dormitory shall be entitled to one 
voting senator. A Freshman dormitory is defined as any dormitory 
with a two-thirds majority of freshman residents." 

Such a statement thus allows upperclassmen, officially resi- 
dents of freshman dormitories as Assistant Counsellors or other- 
wise to represent those dormitories in the Senate. These potential 
Senators, 'though possibly more familiar with the workings of 
our University, could not present the problems of freshmen, or 
the fresh view of a newcomer to our campus community as earn- 
estly as a freshman himself. Although we feel the Constitutional 
Revision Committee did a fine job in behalf of the students, such 
a loophole permits freshmen voters to unconsciously cheat them- 
selves out of a spokesman. 

We do not denounce upperclassmen who honestly wish to

The Necessary Evil 


As the sun rose in the distant hills on that fateful morning 
after the cherubs glanced at their watches. There remained a 
half-hour before the seniors and grad students were to register. 
That was the signal for sophomores and juniors to crawl out ot 
bed, wash, dress eat, and call up the faculty adviser of their ex- 
tra-curricular activity. Hastily pleading a case ot dire emergency,; 
they proceed to gain approval for early registration. 1 his IS not 
to avoid the lines, you understand, but simply to help out when \ 
the others plod wearily by the final desk after 1< pating 

hours performing the dirty deed of legislation. Oh 

We don't condemn those that come up days - pare 

for the necessary evil, for early registration is a pan oi *r\ - 

:ng the students and administration. But the "big nun (ana 
women, too) who sneak through on pretense oi h out have 

caused 'the powers-that-be to clamp down on the ear . registration 
procedure, hurting the students that need this privilege to sen.' 



Probably the biggest bottleneck throughout the i is thai 
mauling mess caused by waiting in line to receive the registratioi 
booklets. The time consumed in this procedure, as well as thai 
added in filling out the course cards and blank spaces, Btarta oil 
the day with a bomb-like blast. The lines are supposed to proceed 
alphabetically, but "Zonis" ends up in front of "Abelow" and "Mer- 
getroid" gets pushed to the end as the Registrar must periodically 
rearrange the crowded line. 

We feel that at least one-half hour could he saved from wait- 
ing in lines and completing the cards if the booklets could be dis- 
tributed, along with the address cards. BEFORE the hour of reg 
istration. Our suggestion simpl- calls for the 'ire of two workers. 
preferably students from Adelphia, Isogon. or staff meml>ers, who 
would be responsible for giving out the formi o- e or two days

released. The Collfc.IAN tall pass them on to you as soon as the figures are 
made available. 

by Al Shumway 
Tied by a 6-6 count af half-time by a surprisingly stubborn 
Bates team, the Redmen football team came powerhousing back 
in the second half to roll over the Bobcats 34-12 at Lewiston last 
Saturday in the opening game of the season for both teams. The 
win gave Coach Charlie O'Rourke a splendid sendoft" on his sopho- 
more year as coach of the Redmen, and makes the fourth consec- 
utive win his teams have made, as 
UM ended otF last season with three 
straight wins. 

The second half Redmen attack was 
■0 devastating that no really one man 
stood out as the individual star. 
Rather, it was a team victory. How- 
ever, special attention should be given 
to the excellent running of Red Porter 
and Buster DiVincenzo. Porter car- 
ried the ball IS times for 12.'i yards 
for an average of nearly 10 yards per 
try, while DiVincenzo averaged near- 
ly seven yards per carry. 
Scoreless First 

The first period was a see-saw af- 
fair with the Bobcats dominating 
much of the play. The highlight of 
this period was Bob Chumbook's 55 
yard runback of Frank McDermott's 
hooming punt. Chumbook gathered in 
the punt on his own 30, and drove 
through nearly the whole Redmen 
team before he was finally downed on 
the UM 15 yard line. However, the 
Redmen line of Al Gilmore, Lou 
Kirsch, Don MacPhee and John Mc- 
Gowan dug in and prevented the Bob- 
cats from scoring. 

The Bobcat's star halfback Bob 
Chumbook was a thorn in the Red- 
men's side all afternoon. Besides be- 
ing able to run like a run-away truck, 
he also did the kicking and some of 
the passing for the Bobcats. 
Chumbook Scores 

A bad pass from center in the sec- 
ond period gave the Bobcats the ball 
on the Redmen 4.'5 yard line and set 
up the first Bates TD. Bob Chumbook 
and Herb Morton, a powerful full- 
back, picked up most of the yardage 
during the Bobcat's drive with Chum- 
book finally carrying over for the 
score. Froio's kick for the extra point 
was wide and Bates led 6-0. 

Chumbook kicked off to the UM 25 
where Frank Jacques received the ball 
and lugged it back to the 4(*>. Jacques, 

who played an excellent game, quickly 

generated the Redmen down the field 

for a score. On second down, Jacques 
faded back and hit All-American 
Tony Chambers with a pass on the 
Bates 4o for a first down. Ha! Boy I 
then sped around end for a IT yard 
gain to give the Redmen first down 
on the 'lu. 

Chambers Scores 

On the next play, Tony Chambers 
showed what made him an Ail-Ameri- 
can. Jacques faded back to pass, while 
Chambers sped to the Coffin corner. 
Just as he was about to step off the 
playing field, Chambers leaped and 
made a spectacular catch of the ball 
for the game tying score. A high pass 
from center prevented the Redmen's 
try for the extra point. 

Soon after the second half kickoff, 
the Bobcat's recovered a fumble on 
the 60 and quickly scored on four 
plays, with a pass from Dave Higgins 
to Ralph Froio resulting in the TD. 
Froio's try for the extra point was 
no good, and that ended the Bobcats 

Porter Scores Two 

With only minutes left in the third 
period, the Redmen gained possession 
of the ball on the Bates 32. On the 
first play, Red Porter who was lull- 
ing like a souped-up tank sped around 
left end to the 20 for a first down. 

Dartmouth Booters Romp 9-1 
Over Briggsmen in Opener 

On the ensuing play, Porter went 
around end again, only this time 
around right end, for the remaining 
distance to pay dirt. Huster DiYin- 

eenzo neatly parted the goal posts fo 
the extra point to give the Redmen 
a 18-12 lead. 
Morton received the kicked' and 

carried the hall tO the 32 where tin 

Redmen linemen hit him hard enough 
to make him fumble the ball. Ton] 
Chambers recovered the tumble to 

end the third quarter. 

Buster DiVincenxo sped to the 26,1 
and on the next p ay I'ortcr again 
sped around right end for a score, and 

Buster again parted the uprights for 

the extra point. 

Bates started a drive after the next 
kick-off'. However, this drive was short 
lived as sophomore guard John Mc- 
Gowan intercepted one of Higgins 
passes and sped down the field like 
a halfback to the Bobcat's 27 yard 

Walls Scores 

The Redmen quickly moved the ball 
downfield for another score. Jerry 
Walls, another of Coach Charlie 
O'Rou ike's ace sophomores, bucked 
the line from the 3 for the score. Bus- 
ter DiVincenzo made it three in a row 
as he again booted the extra point. 

With only minutes left in the game, 
sophomore center Brian Gorman inter- 
cepted a pass on the Bobcat's 40 yard 
line and carried it to the 2<>. Charlie 
Redman picked up 1"> yards to the 
11, and Don Johnson picked up !t to 
the two yard line, from where Red- 
man carried the ball over for the linal 
score. Another sophomore, tackle

the wampum from the Redmen, 9-1, 

as Larry Briggs' team opened the 

tall sports season at Alumni Field 

last Friday afternoon. The match 

I along as expected as the heavily 

favored Dartmouth eleven bore down 

in the late periods with some clever 
passing and shooting. The Redmen 
with a little better luck could have 

made it closer. 

Captain Bob Drawbaugh made an 
auspicious start in his personal drive 

for Ail-American honors by tallying 

Ave goals. The lanky towhead, who 

toured Bermuda with ■ team of col- 
lege stars this summer, displayed 
s.mie fine soccer in performing his 

scoring feat. 

Suleski Injured 

The loss of John Suleski, star cen- 
ter halfback, due to a badly bruised 
instep, was the turning point of the 
game. Suleski steadied and spearhead- 
ed the defense in the first half and in 
part of the third period up until 
which time it had been a fairly even 

"Limey" Hoelzel booted in the lone 
Mass. goal early in the first quarter. 
Ken Crooks, Captain Paul Pudding- 

ton, and Hoelzel carried the brunt of 
the offensive chores throughout the 
game while the rest of the squad 
showed flashes of brillance mixeci 
with early season errors. Dartmouth 
made most of these errors and there 
fore walked off with the match. 

The game proved to be a good prep 
per for the Big Green before the)

A student union is a building which 
houses various campus organizations, 
plus reading rooms, ball rooms, bowl- 
ing alleys, a snack bar, workshops, 
the Post Office, lounges, game rooms, 
a public relations agency, a store, and 
many other facilities that are usually 
scattered throughout a campus. 

A student union becomes the social 
heart of a campus, a gigantic com- 
munity center providing a focal point 
for university life. 

Since a student union is entirely 
run by students, it enables more stu- 
dents to obtain jobs. The student un- 
ion organization is a laboratory of 
student management and self-expres- 

Although our campus at present 
does not possess a student union, the

Senate Appropriates Money 
To Buy New Band Uniforms 

by Madeleine May 

The band will have new uniforms 
this year because of the Senate ap- 
propriation of $1,238 which was made 
at the meeting last Tuesday night. 

The Senate decided on this sum 
after a lengthy discussion in which 
Donald Pierce, band manager, ex- 
plained the band's critical need for 
new uniforms. The present uniforms 
had been used for twelve years, he 
The Senate decided on this sum 
after a lengthy discussion in which 
Donald Pierce, band manager, ex- 
plained the band's critical need for 
new uniforms. "The present uniforms 
had been used for twelve years," he 
said, "and the new ones are expected 
to last until 1968." 

The financial status of the band 
was explained by the manager. "We 
can afford new uniforms," he said, 
"because Mr. McGuirk, head of the 
athletic department, has allotted us 
$1,000 to cover our traveling expens- 
es with the team. We are going to 
use this money to pay the additional 
cost of the uniforms." (Total cost is 

Rita Katz, acting president of the 
Senate, felt that this sum from Mr. 
McGuirk could eventually be used to 
pay for the entire cost of the uni- 
forms. Donald Pierce replied, "We 
cannot demand this sum every year 
from the athletic department." 

John Miller, a member of the Sen- 
ate, said that the band should come 
to the Senate for the money for uni- 
forms because it is the only body on 
campus which represents the entire 
school. He added, "If the University 
band does not represent the student 
body, what other organization does?" 
Another member of the Senate, Ceil 
O'Donnel, pointed out that when the 
Senate had added 75 cents to the stu- 
dent tax it intended to use the money 
for items such as the band and drill 

"The Senate can afford this appro- 
priation," John Heintz, also of the 
Senate, said, because we will still have 
a balance of $5,600 once the appro- 
priation is made." 

A vote was taken and the Senate 
decided unanimously to allot this sum 
of money for the new uniforms. The 
Senate also took care of four petitions. 

from Greenough boarding Hall which 
were brought by James Stevens. In- 
cluded in the demands were larger 
portions, better prepared meals, long- 
er serving hours, Saturday breakfasts 
and eggs prepared two ways; medium 
and well done. A committee was re- 
vived under the leadership of Tom 
Fox to inquire into the situation and 
see what can be done. 

The Senate then brought up the 
question of the prices of books. Joan 
Larwood and Ceil O'Donnel, both 
members of the Senate, volunteered 
to find out if we were getting a re- 
duction and if not, why not. 

Three teams of Senators are going 
to explain the functions of the Senate 
to treasurer girls next Tuesday night, 
speaking in Lewis will be Bob Russel,

fraternity was known as Zeta Zeta

its inception in 1950. 

The Delta Sig house is located at

Goodell To Sponsor 
Poetry Reading Room 

The University of Massachusetts 
Poetry Room, creative center for the 
study and pursuit of the literary arts, 
was bom last Tuesday. 

Conceived in the minds of those 
on campus who share an enthusiasm 
for literature, the Poetry Room is an 
effort on the part of alumni, faculty 
and students to provide opportunities 
for reading, hearing and discussing 

At the first meeting of the newly- 
organized Literary Society, Mr. Rob- 
ert Tucker, chairman of the Society, 
announced plans for the room in 
Goodell Library which will provide 
these facilities. 

Mr. Tucker said that arrangements 
have been completed for a temporary 
room in Goodell Library to house 
gifts of modern poetry and criticism 
and of poetry recordings. The latter 
may be heard by means of silent lis- 
tening apparatus loaned by the Audio- 
Visual Department. 

The Poetry Room's final home will 
be in the new wing of the library 
when that is constructed.

Spirit rousers for the UConn game 
tonight will be the annual torchlight 
parade, rally, and the Isogon Schol- 
arship Dance. 

The parade will start at Butterfield 
at 7 p.m. Led by the band and cheer- 
leaders, the parade will proceed down 
Butterfield Hill, past Mills and 
Brooks, along Infirmary road to 
Thatcher and Lewis, down Lover's 
Lane to North Pleasant Street, past 
Hamlin and Knowlton, Goessmann and

lot where the rally will be held.

ade will be welcomed. DO NOT 

First Rally of the Year 

The rally will feature a bonfire, and 
entertainment by Gerry Cruchiel, Art 
Dudevoir, Bob Shafton, Norm Klein, 
and Gerry Cohen. 

Provost Mather, Warren McGuirk, 
Director of Athletics, and Charlie 
O'Rourke, Coach, will speak briefly, 

after which the members of the team 
will be introduced. 


RAIN OR SHINE, however, the 
Isogon Scholarship Dance will be held 
at Drill Hall. 

This dance is an annual affair for 
the purpose of raising money for a 
scholarship given each year to a Jun- 
ior woman. This year Isogon hopes to 
make enough money for two scholar 

In a directive issued from the Pro- 
vost's Office, the longstanding and 
outmoded system of penalizing fresh- 
men and sophomore students two 
points for each excessive cut was 

Explicitly, the memorandum stated 
that "Effective immediately there will 
be no further deduction of grade 
points for unexcused absences of 
sophomores or freshmen by the Dean 
of Men's Office. The final grade for 
academic work in the University is 
the sole responsibility of the instruc- 
tor in the course in which the grade 
is given. Any penalty levied against 
the academic standing of a student is 
at the discretion of the instructor in 
the course involved and should be in- 
cluded in his evaluation of the work 
done. Grades reported as well as final 
grades recorded are the sole respon- 
sibility ?f the faculty." 

This change eliminates that section 
in the regulations to be found in the 
Handbook which states that "penal- 
ties for unexcused absences will 
amount to a deduction of two points 
from the final grade . . . The Dean 
of Men's Office will make the above 
deductions. In addition, the student 
will not be able to make up work 
missed. Double penalties will be in- 
curred for unexcused absences im- 
mediately preceding and following va- 
cation periods." 

In effect, what this far-reaching 
reform in administration policy means 
is that the Provost is restating his 
conviction that the purpose of the 
University is to try to mold mature 
men and women equipped to COpe with 
the problems of citizens in a democ- 
racy. Therefore, the system followed 
in the past several years is to be no 
more. This new policy may signify a 
new era in relationships among stu- 
dents, faculty, and administration.

tUnit For the incoming Freshmen, there is the danger of following 
the crowd and not doing individual thinking. 

This can be avoided by becoming an active part of UM and 
continually knowing your University. That means getting to know 
your profs They've studied and thought longer and more intense- 
ly than we, and besides— they are human, too! 

That means "being in the know" of actions and goals of the 
administration. Did you go to the opening Convocat ion 

That means seeking out the best educational opportunities 
for yourself, and enjoying the best UM offers in extra-curricula 

aCtiV Surses should be selected with care and proper time should 
be given to study. Take advantage of discussions and extra meet- 
Lgfrthe various departments. Join social and athletic activities 
that coincide with your interests and add to your ^growUi 

This requires a lot of confidence in oneself tog ethe i with con- 
scientious work, but when has anyone acheved anything good 
and satisfying without conscientious effort . 

It will require many difficult decisions, too. Often decisions 
are not a choice between a right and a wrong, but between two 
pebble rights. The right decision can be made -re successful^ 
by the student who has thought about the goals for his future. 

It's time for a change in your outlook, but be sure it's the 
right one. M H

WMUA News 

WMUA, the student radio voice of 
the University, is again on the air! 
Thanks to the many long hours put 
in by the station staff prior to the 
opening of school, the technical, ad- 
ministrative, and programming red 
tape has been overcome and broad- 
casting is underway. 

The responsibilities and challenges 
of running the station belong to the 
students, for although Professors 
Smith and Zaitz have given invalu- 
able advice, the faculty does not di- 
rectly supervise any aspect of 
YYMUA's activities. In fact, WMUA 
has the distinction of being the only 
non-commercial, educational radio 
station in the country to be entirely 
run bv students. 

In the process of providing its lis- 
teners, both on and off campus, with 
high calibre programs of educational 
and entertainment value, WMUA also 
enable* members of its staff to receive 
valuable practical experience in radio 
and related fields such as business 
administration, dramatics, education, 
engineering, music, public relations, 
television, and writing. 

Since WMUA operates mainly for 
the student body rather than its out- 
side listeners, it has gone to much 
expense to improve campus recep- 
tion by installing special equipment 
like the new FM convertors. These 

conVertors, which send WMUA's 91.1 
mg. FM signal over 640 on the AM 
dial, were designed and built on cam- 
pus and have already been installed 
in nearly all of the dormitories to 
eliminate the heavy electric static 
that clouds ordinary reception. 

Although WMUA is an educational 
station it prides itself that, with its 
collection of over two thousand rec- 
ords, it is able to give the students 
the music they want to hear without 
the drawback of commercials. Any re- 
quests may be made by dialing 1544 
or visiting the studios located in the 
tower on the fifth floor of South

Go's "E" and "G" of the 376th Inf 
Itegt., 94th Division, U.S. Army Re 
serve, held their first meeting of the 
Academic year at the stables on 
Wednesday, Sept. 23. 

The outfit is composed of Univer- 
sity students and is officered in part 
by members of the campus commun- 
ity. "Brars" in the outfit include Mr. 
Schroeder of the German department, 
who holds the rank of Master Ser 
geant, 1st Lt. Joe Hilyard, graduate 
student, 2nd Lt. George Marr, '54. 
and M/Sgt. Joe Szewczak, '55. 

The unit will hold meetings at the 
University stables each Wednesday 
evening at 8:00 until Dec 9. Any stu- 
dents or faculty wishing to join the 
unit should either attend one of tlv 
meetings or contact one of the above 
named officers. 

The unit was formed on campus 
last November, as the result of a 
wish on the part of the Army to 
make some sort of military trainb.g 
available to those students who 
wished to acquire more experience 
in military matters than that given 
by the ROTC staffs of the University. 
The program is entirely separate 
from the ROTC. 

While in the Reserve, members are 
l>aid for each meeting at the pre- 
vailing rates. These rates start at 
$2.60 per night for the recruit. In 
the matter of rank, credit is given to 
upperclassmen for time put in at 
the ROTC program. Promotions in 
the unit are regular and fast, with 
the freshman possibly attaining the 
rank of sergeant at the end of his 
four year service with the unit. A 
master sergeant in the unit receives 
over $8.00 for a two-hour meeting, 
while officers receive corresoondingly 

Another aspect of the program of 
value to the student is the gaining 
of longevity which can be applied to 
active military service. The Army 
grants a pay raise for each two years 
of active or reserve service completed. 
Membership in the reserve is applied 
toward these raises. Therefore, the 
freshman who joins the Reserves, and 
goes on to complete the senior 
ROTC program will join the Army 
with four years of service to his pay 


Members of the unit who satisfac- 
torily complete the senior ROTC pro 

gram are given a discharge from Ihe 
unit on the day before they receive 
their commissions. Those who do n. t 
enter the advanced ROTC course may 
enlist in the army just prior to thMr 
draft call and thereby enter the serv- 
ice with the rank which they have 
attained in the reserves. Some draft 
boards have been accepting service 
in the Reserve as sufficient for the 
military obligation of a student going 
to college, and have been giving de- 
ferments. All personnel now signing 
up or being drafted have an eight 
year service obligation. Time in the 
Reserve counts against that obliga- 
tion. Reservists may also work tow- 
ard commissions in the army through 
Lhe Army correspondence courses. 
Several members of the unit have 
received their commissions in thK 

The Reserve furnishes uniforms for 
the meetings and for the two-week 
summer camp, which this summer 
was held at Fort Drum, N.Y. At 
camp, the trainee lives and works 
with the people with whom he has 
been training all year. The unit at 
the University has scheduled 24 paid 
meetings for this year. The meet- 
ings are held only during the school 
year, and there are no meetings dur 
ing finals or vacation periods. 

Index Announces 

Staff Openings 

The Index is looking for qualified 
people to work on the 1953-1954 year- 
book. There are a great many open- 
ings on the literary, typing, busi 
ness, statistics, and advertising staff. 
No pre v ious experience is neces- 
sary; and the only qualification is an 
eagerness to help make the year- 
book bigger and better than ever 

All people interested, seniors es- 
pecially, are urged to leave their 
name in the Index office in Mem- 
orial Hall. The office will be open for 
this purpose next Monday and Tues- 
day from 2 to 5 p.m.

Betty Munch, '54, will be one of 
two boys and two girls from the U.S. 
to spend a Chilean winter this year 
under the International Farm Youth 
Exchange program of the national 
IH, She will return to the U. of M. 
next fall to complete her studies and 
graduate with the class of '55. 

Under this program Betty's duty 
during her six months in Chile will 
be to live and work with a dozen dif- 
ferent farm families. 

On her return she accepts an obli- 
gation to be on call to speak of her 
experiences and show slides to inter- 
ested groups. This often results in 
as many as 40 or 50 engagements, ac- 
cording to Mr. Horace Jones of the 
UM 1-H department. 

"A 'grassroots' ambassador from 
the U.S.," as Betty put it, her func- 
tion will be to increase understand 
ing among nations. Travelers under 
the exchange are expected to present 
the American point of view to the 
countries they visit, to combat anti- 
Americanism in Latin American 
•ountries, and to return to our coun- 
try ready to interpret the point of 
view of the country they visited to 
Americans and arouse interest in it. 
To bake an American pie will be 
one more specific duty the Chileans 
will probably ask of Betty, since pie 
is uniquely American. Even pie plates 
are lacking in Chile, and past Ex- 
change girls have had to use frying 
pans for baking. 

Christmas will probably find her 

at a swimming party; letters from 

past Exchange travelers say these 

are traditional in the Chilean holiday 

.ea .on. 

The International Farm Youth Ex- 
change is sponsored by the National 
4-H Foundation at Washington, D.C., 
and is in its sixth year of existence. 
It is not a government affiliate. 

Different from such organizations 
as the Fulbright scholarships where 
the exchange travelers go to study, 
these Exchange travelers on their 
visits have as their sole responsibility 
to live and work as a member of the 
families they join during their stay. 
About 150 young people make an 
: iiange each year, and Betty is one 

Member of Library Staff to Help

Heginning this year, Goodell lib- 
rary plans fee have a member of the 
staff available to help in the use of 
reference materials H well as to ser- 
vice periodicals, documents and 
closed stack material. This staff 
member will be on duty evenings

Future Undergrads 
To Invade Campus 

This Saturday some 2,000 stu- 
dents, parents, and teachers will be 
arriving at the U.M. campus for the 
annual High School Day. This yearly 
event is sponsored by the Alumni 
Association under Bob Leavitt's di- 
rection, and is one of the many pub- 
licity devices of the University. 

The visiting students, seniors and 
juniors in high school, will register 
at Memorial Hall where they will 
be organized into groups that will 
tour the campus. 

For those visitors interested in 
specific departments, faculty mem- 
bers will conduct tours around their 
own buildings. For general inspection 
tours the Maroon Key and Scrolls 
will assist as guides and as handy 
information sources. 

After a lunch at Draper, the guests 
will receive free passes to the foot- 
ball game against U. Conn. 

of about 15 going to South America. 
Betty told the reporter that she will 
leave about Oct. 15 after a four day 
orientation period in Washington.

eight persons out of a staff of 13 are 
required to carry the night schedule. 
The weekday hours therefore are 
maintained as formerly, Mon. through 
Fri., eight a.m. to 10 p.m., since dur- 
ing these hours the library use is at 
its greatest peak. The weekend hours, 
however, have had to he curtailed in 
order to maintain staff coverage for 
the Mon. through Fri. night hours, 
since library personnel has remained 
constant throughout the period of in- 
creased library demands. 

An analysis of the use of the Li- 
brary during the academic year 1952- 
53 has shown that especially on Sat. 
afternoon students have not availed 
themselves of the library facilities to 
any marked degree. 

After careful consideration for the 
best interests of the students, the fol- 
lowing hours will be observed during 
the regular academic year, and ex- 
cept for vacations the library will 
maintain the following hours: 
Mon. -Fri. — 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. 
Sat.— 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. 
Sun. — 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. 
Holidays — 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. 
In the case of Mon. holidays the 
Library will be closed Sun. In the 
case of Sat. holidays the Library will 
be closed but open Sunday as usual. 

The Borrower's Card which each 
student presumably now has should 
be shown when requesting a reserved 
book or borrowing a regular two 
week book. Please keep this card with 
you when using the library. By vote 
of the Board of Trustees the student 
who loses his Borrower's Card must 
pay 25 cents for a duplicate. 

Overdue Notices Quarterly 
In order to reduce the amount of 
clerical work involved in sending out 
overdue notices, the library will not 
notify students when the regular two 
week books are overdue except four 
times a year. However, fines accumu 
late from the day following the due 
date, stamped in the book, unlesH in- 
dividual borrowers renew the books 
on or before the date due. 

In the case of reserved books, no- 
tices are immediately sent out. Co- 
operation is asked in returning the 
reserved books as soon as possible, as 
there are only a limited number of 
copies for large classes.

Mickey Mantle says: 

"My Dad played semi-pro ball 
and wanted me to play ball, too. 
He put a glove on my hand when 

I was just a kid. I loved 
baseball from the start - and I 
worked hard at it to be good. 
So far it looks like it paid off.'

Single, Double Toil and Trouble 

by Jack Gordon 

Well, there's a new type of football this year, or shall we say the old 
one returned. It's called single platoon football. The new rules devised read 
something like this: A player may not return to the field of pi

ing substituted for in the same period, except for the last four minutes of 
the second and fourth quarters. All this means is the downfall of the 
cialist, and the return of the honest-to-goodness real football player 
who can play both offense and defense). 

Many articles have been written on the subject; the most recent and 
readable being the symposium of Notre Dame's Frank Leahy and Oklahoma's 
Bud Wilkinson in Look Magazine, Leahy against and Wilkinson for the an 
system. Both men gave such convincing arguments that it seemed to mo 
that the complexity paralled that of the old which came first chicken or egg 


lltO LILll It .->*-C I IM-<1 IU III'- 

came first chicken or egg 

Mr. Leahy stated that a ratio of 7 to 1 coaches in the nation were 
against the new ruling, but that seems natural if given a Uttle thought. A 
coach always wants to get the most out of his material and not have to 
worry if the boys can remember both offensive and defensive assignments. 
Mr. Wilkinson, however, stays with the point of view of the NCAA in that a 
boy is not a football player if he cannot block and tackle. 

The new ruling is supposed to benefit the small colleges such as we who 
have the material and not the numbers. Such versatile players as Tony 
Chambers and Walt Naida substantiate that point. 

The larger schools still clinging to the two platoon idea have tried us- 
ing two completely different teams, one for each period. While watching 
Nebraska lose to Oregon on TV a few weekends ago, I saw this disturbing 
phenomena. It turned out that Oregon's first team walked all over the first 
string of Nebraska, but it was entirely the opposite picture in the second 
quarter when the second squads were in action. The result seemed to show

Third Championship 

Coach Lew Derby is after his third 
Oonaeeatlve Yankee Conference Cross 
Country Championship this fall with 
co-captains Harry Aldrich and Hank 
Knapp plus a number of promising 
sophomores to aid him in his bid. 
Having literally run away with the 
conference meet! in the two previous 
years, this ■oaiOtt'l squad has a fine 
nucleus of veterans plus needed bal- 
ance afforded by the newcomers. 

Aldrich, the individual conference 
champion and record holder, and 
Knapp will have as running mates, 
lettermen Bob Steere and Dick Quig- 
ley. Both men have the necessary ex- 
perience to became stars in treir own 
right this season. 

Coach Derby expresses a definite 
pleasure when discussing his spho- 
mores. "Squeaky" Horn, Bill Hoss, 
Will Lepkowski, Pete Conway, Frank 
Power "will keep right up with Har- 
ry and Hank" the coach feels. 

Conway, recent winner of the an- 
nual Greenfield road race, is in fine 
condition and is definitely the dark- 
horse of the squad.

French House Meeting 

The French House held its first 
meeting on Thursday, Sept. 24, in the 
French Salon at the Abbey, under the 
supervision of Dr. Katherine Clark 
for the election of officers and state- 
ment of purpose. 

Results of the elections were as 
follows: president, Mary Clark '54; 
secretary, Janine Volk '56; treasurer, 
Marion Glidden '54; and librarian, 
Peg Parsons '55. 

By speaking French in the House 
at all times, the members hope to 
achieve their purpose of improving 
their oral French. Christine Barthe. 
a French exchange student, is giving 
the girls first hand guidance in their 

Peg Parsons suggested that the 
French House members edit their own 
yearbook to give the seniors a remem- 
brance to their days in French House; 
to provide reference for future mem- 
bers; and to tell of the activities, 
meetings, and progress of the House. 
This new project was accepted with 
much enthusiasm.

It will be a big day for the Bean

Kngland state universities move into 
Yankee Conference competition with 
Rhode Island's defending co-champ- 
iom a length out in front after their 
13-6 victory over Maine last week. 

The Rams were hard put to avenge 
their only defeat of a year ago, but 
in so doing disposed of one of the 
three co-champions and made the pre- 
season dopesters look, for once, like 
i xperts.

Educator Scores 

Boston, Mass. — IP) The average 
teacher's "blissful ignorance" of cur- 
rent educational and psychological 
research and the lack of ability to sift 
out significant discoveries, that have 
definite educational value, causes a 
lag of 30 to 40 years between early 
knowledge and actual classroom use 
of new teaching techniques and tools, 
according to Dr. William C. Kvara- 
ceus, Boston University professor of 

"Most classroom teachers' contacts 
with research findings are through de- 
layed secondary sources," he said, 
"without the teacher's awareness of 
the second-hand nature of this report- 
ing or through 'interpreters' who are 
found in large numbers on summer 
session campuses." 

This lag prevented for many years 
the general use of such tools as in- 
telligence tests, standardized achieve- 
ment tests, audio-visual aids and the 
unitary approach to learning, in 
sharp contrast to "the ready accept- 
ance and use of penicillin and aureo- 
mycin, which have become household

Tossup is the word used to des- 
cribe this Saturday's clash between 
the Huskies of Connecticut and the 
Redmen of Massachusetts here at Al- 
umni Field. Both teams did a credit- 
able job last weekend although the 
UConns were on the long end of a 
.'{2-0 score against a heavily manned 
Yale squad. The Redmen on the other 
hand won easily over a rugged Bates 

Good Defense Despite Score 

The score bears little reference to 
the type of football exhibited by the 
Connecticut squad. Three late inter- 
ceptions in the fourth quarter led to 
quick touchdowns and the lopsided 
score. At half-time the tally read 6-0, 
which shows the great defense by 
the Huskies in halting the Elis. Half- 
backs Phil Tinsley, Mike Ben, and full- 
back Buddy Amendola will be the ones 
to watch in the ball-carrying depart- 
ment while Bob Roy, Ron Rymash, 
and John Cunningham are Bob In 
galls' veterans in the front wall. 

By Land and Air 
Meanwhile Charlie O'Rourke's boys 
will be at full strength with the ex- 
ception of Joe Phelan, who is still 
nursing his bad shoulder. Capt. Walt 
Naida and Bill Rex both are in good 
shape and ready to be called on for 
full duty. Little America Tony Cham- 
bers has been taking it easy as a re- 
sult of a groin injury in last week's 
battle, but says he'll be there when 
Saturday afternoon rolls along. 

Coach O'Rourke plans to follow the 
same pattern as last week as far as 
duties with Franks McDermott and 
Jacques alternating at that trouble 
spot. After displaying a potent ground 
game against Bates, the strategy will 
call for more of the same until 
stopped and then go to the air. 

Yankee Conference Opener 
Being the Yankee Conference open- 
er for both teams, it promised to be 
an all out thriller. 

These are the tentative lineups:

University Chorale 
With 32 Auditions 
Inaugurates Year 

Auditions for the 'A2 singing posi- 
tions in the University Chorale, 
scheduled for Tuesday evening, Sept. 
29, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Memo- 
rial Hall Auditorium, will began an- 
other year for this choral organiza- 
tion whose public relations and musi- 
cal value gain statewide recognition 
with each season. 

The travel schedule for this group 
will be curtailed in favor of return- 
ing to the founding policy of the 
Chorale: creation of a group of sing- 
ers each year who will prepare a 
secular concert, a sacred concert, a 
one-act stage work, and contribute 
chorale support to the annual Oper- 
etta Guild production. 

Included in the secular concert will 
be folk songs, hits from Carousel, art 
songs of Hr.-ihms .ind Nowerby, and 
arrangements from I'inian's Rninhow 
and Song of Norway. The sacred con- 
cert will feature a requiem by Gab- 
riel Faure. Down in the Valley will 
be the mil' ad stage work. The Chor- 
ale will assist the Operetta Guild in 
its production of Carousel. 

Besides its appearances on campus, 
the Choral* will accept only invita- 
tions for concert engagements spon- 
sored by high schools, associations 
in industry and business, radio net- 
works, service organizations and edu- 
cational groups. 

Auditions are open to all students.

Gremlin Makes Clean 
Break and Snatehes 
Editor's Mouthpiece 

Reliable sources have it that the 
gremlins of World War Two fame 
have set out on an insidious campaign 
to ruin campus communications. Wed- 
nesday morning one of their number 
virtually isolated the Collegian by ex- 
pertly severing the phone cord. Be- 
fore the staff went more than ninety- 
five per cent insane the phone com- 
pany arrived at the scene of the dis- 
aster, and averted further tragedy 
with quick action. 

Recurrent rumors kept popping up 
all day that the gremlins next ob- 
jectives were the women's dorms, and 
to them the Collegian offers the fol- 
lowing advice: 

1. Keep a round-the-clock twenty 
four hour watch; 

2. Be prepared not to see them; 
they are invisible; 

3. Immediately alert the phone to 
prepare emergency expeditions to 
deal with any and all damage. 
It is felt that immediate action on 

the part of everyone will prevent a 
few of the tragedies, but the Collegian 
warns that the gremlins will be sue 
cessful in most cases. 

A statement that the dastardly 
deeds were perpretrated by freshmen 
as a reprisal for the long meal line^ 
at Greenough and Butterfield proved 
to be untrue, since it was disclosed 
that the infiltration into the Collegian 
office was made by someone verv 
At press-time the campus police 
and the FBI were still looking for the 
gremlins. The FBI told the Collegia 
that the trend seemed to indicate more 
attacks shortly.

The Cage again demonstrated its 
unfitness as a concert hall. The poor 
acoustics of the building are notice-

Progressive Jazz of Stan Kenton 
Draws Crowd of 4200 at Concert 

by Jim Devaney 

A near-capacity audience of 4200 
crowded the Cage last night to hear 
the orchestra of Stan Kenton in the 
first concert of the school year. 

Kenton started the program off 
with a neat original number which 
gave full rein to the improvisational 
ability of the band members. This was 
followed by "Collaboration", a piano- 
orchestra number with Kenton on the 

All through the concert the band 
demonstrated its throrough training 
by its ability to play without the 
active leadership of Kenton, who of- 
ten retired to the back of the band- 
stand and let the band take the ini- 

An unusual feature of the first 
half of the program was "Cuba 
Night"; in which a member of the 
band first explained the various in- 
struments and parts, which go into 
a jazz orchestration, illustrating his 
talk with demonstrations by the va- 
rious instruments. After the talk, the 
band played the number as it would 
be heard by the listener. 

Also heard during the first half 
of the program were "Poinciana", a 
slap bass solo number, a saxaphone 
and orchestra arrangement, and "Sol- 

The high point of the second half 
of the concert was the popular Ken- 
ton arrangement of "September 
Song", with the ensemble doing the 
vocal. Also heard on the second half 
of the program were "Pennies from 
Heaven", and "Babalu". 

This concert of modem music was 
a definite change from former Con- 
cert Association presentations, and

Briggsmen Lose 
4-0 To Wesleyan 
For Second Loss 


The "little Colonel" tells ... 

What Happened to the Redmen 

University of Connecticut 41 — University of Massachusetts 

Action Photo of UConn - UMass Game 

» * 


by Pete Stoler 

The Redmen soccer team went down 
their second straight defeat as 
loose ball handling in the first period 
gave Wesleyan a 4-0 win. 

This first period laxity gave the 
winners three goals which was more 
than enough to win the game. Wes- 
leyan picked up an additional insur- 
ance goal in the final canto when they 
scored on a penalty kick. 

The Briggsmen were smothered in 
the first half by Wesleyan's rushing 
offensive, and the play stayed rather 
spotty during the second quarter. 
Redmen Comeback 
The second half, found a different 
Redman team on the field. The defense 
tightened and Wesleyan was stopped 
and outplayed. John Suleski led in 
closing the gaps in the Redmen's line, 
and Al Hoelzel and Clarence Simp- 
son led the offensive comeback in 
which they did everything but score. 
One break for the Redmen is the re- 
turn of Clarence Simpson to the soc- 
cer wars. He originally had not 
planned to go out for the team this 
year. His addition will prove helpful 
in the remaining games. 

The Briggsmen have taken off 
some of the rough edges that they 
showed in their opening defeat to 
Dartmouth, but they are still not a 
smooth functioning machine. 

This afternoon, the Redmen play 
host to the Williams eleven at Alum- 
ni Field. Game time is 3:30 p.m. 

That, my dear readers, is what became of what was touted by the ex 
perts as a ding-dong football battle. To these eyes, it smacked of the Marci

The first of a series of reports 
from the Alcohol Center is widely 
discussed "Drinking In College," pub- 
lished last Friday by the Yale Uti- 
9 versity Press. This report based oe a 
study of 16,000 men and women stu- 
dents in 27 Colleges and Universities 
throughout the United States, is the 
first study ever made of the drinking 
habits of college students. 

Among the conclusions reached in 
the book is the fact that the drinking 
patterns of most students are formed 
1 before they enter college. 

The survey of college drinking is 
one of many being made at the Yale 
Alcohol Center. Perhaps the most 
important of these projects is a study 
of the bodily changes induced by 
small amounts of alcohol consumed 
by normal people. The purpose of this 
study, now being organized, is to 
find an explanation of why people 

drink. . 

"We're hoping to learn the basic 
facts about the ordinary drinker, and 
for the purpose of this project, we're 
not interested in the extremes," said 
Mr. Bacon. "We want' to learn the 
effects on the body and emotions of

Yale's Center of Alcohol Studies, 
started out in the 1920's as a labora- 
tory of applied physiology. Initially, 
its only interest in alcohol was as a 
chemical factor in physiology, but as 
information of these early studies 
rained currency, the laboratory be-

gy 1937, it was decided to expand 
the entire field of investigations.. £ 
sociologist, an economist, a jurist, a 
statistician, a biologist, and a doctor 
were added to the staff. The number 
of different fields represented reflects 
the wide impact of alcoholism in the 

community. > 

"Drinking In College," based on a 
six-year study, is the first major re- 
port of the Alcohol Center. Apart 
from what the book tells about col- 
lege drinking in America, the study 
is important because it established 
the foundation for a long-range study 
of a whole group of people containing 
a small proportion certain to become 

••We at the Alcohol Center have 
long felt a need to study such a 
group," said Mr. Bacon. "We decided 
on college students because they're 
from the Alcohol Center is the widely 
relatively less inhibited about an- 
swering questionnaires than adults, 
and also because they were available 
in groups on the campus. 

"Also," he said, "we knew college 
students were old enough so we were 
sure a large number would have start- 
ed drinking, but not so long ago that 
they would have forgotten when and 
under what circumstances. 

"Until recently," Mr. Bacon ex- 
plained, "all data on drinking habits 
were concerned with abnormal drink- 
ing and its relationship to divorce, 
crime and the like. We felt it essen- 
tial to gain a picture of the normal 
drinking customs of the American 

A meeting for all persons interes- 
ted in trying out for the Varsity and 
the ROTC rifle teams will be held 
Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 6:30 pm in the 
Training Aids room in the Drill Hall. 

M-Sgt. Wooster coach of both teams 
explained that membership on the 
teams are not restricted to ROTC 

Captain of the Varsity team this 
year is Roger Bartels '54. 

There has been a considerable ad- 
dition of equipment this year. Inclu- 
ded among the new equipment are 
six new Winchester 52's, new shooting 
jackets, shooting gloves and spotting 

The ROTC team will compete in 

(the annual Hearst match and area 
intercollegiate matches. 
The varsity team will compete in 
New England College Rifle League 
matches and will fire several shoul- 
der to shoulder matches. 

The Armor and Air ROTC teams 
are to be combined this year. 

o-LaStarza fight with you-know-who cowering before the onslaught of 
the Huskies, and leaving a sickish feeling in the stomachs of most of the 
7000 fans (short for fanatics), including 2000 disillusioned future frosh, who 
turned out for the game. 

Of course, many will pass off the game as one of those days when tn«< 
winners could do no wrong, and the losers couldn't do anything right. This 
may be more truth than poetry. The way the Redmen played last Saturday, 
they would have been lucky to beat a Sunday School eleven. 


One will have to admit that the Redmen made a creditable showing in 
the first period. However, in the second canto, the going became rough and 
many of the so-called gridiron heroes seemed to lie down on the job and 
quit right there. As the game progressed, the blocking and tackling, and 111 
some cases the running became more and more anemic. One cannot make 
holes in the opposing line by asking the other gentlemen to move over. You 
have to hit them, and hit them hard. 

If this fiasco (I haven't the heart to call it a game), had happened later 
in the season or maybe away from home on some foreign soil, although it 
still would have been relatively inexcusable, there would not have been quite 
the bitter taste left in the mouths of those who watched it. However, our 
heroes coming from a triumphant defeat over Bates expected the UConn s 
to fall at the sight of their press clippings. They didn't. The loyal undergrad- 
uates who had been filled with stories of this new glorious team came out to 
the field to see a fighting team-win or lose. They didn't. The frosh, many 
of whom had never seen a college football game, came out expecting to 

see just that. They didn't. 

There were a few ball players that made efforts to rally the team and 
to at least try and stem the tide. However, their efforts went for naught. 


This corner is willing to bet that you will not have to suffer a sight 
such as the afore- mentioned spectacle for many a moon. Knowing Coach 
Charlie O'Rourke and Coach Chet Gladchuk, last Saturday's offenders will 
meet with their full wrath during practice sessions this week. They will play 
ball next Saturday, or they will find themselves picking up splinters the 

rest of the season. . , 

No one minds seeing his team beaten if they at least stay in their fight 
ing the whole game. It is the sickening scene of a team quiting under fire 
that is one of the most disheartening spectacles in sports. 

This Saturday, the Redmen meet Springfield College, a team they have 
not beaten since 1915. If there is any fight left in the Redmen, they will get 
up off the floor like champs to whip Springfield and prove that they want to 
play football. They did it last year after the disastrous Northeastern game 
when they came back to beat Brandeis. They say history repeats itself.

Wilson Returns From Greenland; 
Reports on Glaciers & Climate 

Copyright 1953. twoin & Mrus Tomcco Cs 

The question of the year has at 
last been answered. The earth is get- 
ting warmer and the glaciers are 
slowly receding. 

Professor Wilson, Geology, was the 
leader of an expedition to Greenland 
which was sponsored by the American 
Geographical Society. The topograph- 
er for the expedition was Professor 
Carl Hendrickson, Civil Engineering. 

The summer was spent on the gla- 
ciers of Greenland, where the average 
temperature was below freezing. As 
pleasant as this may sound, the cool- 
ing benefits of the trip were entirely 
lost when the expedition returned to 
New York during the worst heat wave 
in the history of the nation. 

Professor Wilson reported that the 
present conditions in Greenland are 
similar to those in New England 11, 
1)00 years ago. The mountains in the 
intei ior are covered with 10,000 feet 
of ice. However, on the coast it is 
warmer and there is agriculture. 

The people in Greenland are Es- 
kimos and Danes, all calling them- 
selves Greenlanders. Greenland has 
recently been made a part of Den- 
mark. It is one of the oldest colonized 
areas in the western hemisphere, dis- 
covered in 080 A.D. by Eric the Red. 

Greenland has become an important 
part of the Allied defense system in 
recent years. The air base at Thule 
is at the edge of the glacial cap. 

Along with assuring us that the 
earth is warming up, Professor Wil- 
son indirectly assured us that the 
University is well known. 

Not only were two taff members 
|an integral part of the trip, but a 

(recent Grad, Herman Gottesman, '47, 
Physics, was the official photographer 
for the group. 
Just how important Greenland will 
be in the future is not yet known, 
but its location, and the dream of yet 
undiscovered resources in the buried 
hills promise more interesting dis- 
coveries in the future than a science 
fiction writer dares dream of. 

Frosh Boost 
ROTC Outfit 

A total of 262 freshmen brought 
the initial enrollment of the Armor 
ROTC unit to 600 cadets it was an- 
nounced by Col. Virgil F. Shaw, 

The remainder of the unit is made 
up of 204 sophomore, 66 juniors, and 
68 seniors. 

Col. Shaw explained that the Army 
ROTC officer procurement program 
may be curtailed to some extent in 
future years. However, he said un- 
der present conditions, those cadets 
enrolled in the advanced course in 
military science may reasonably ex- 
pect to be commissioned and called to 
active duty upon completion of their, 
academic work. 

Jt was pointed out that such com- , 
missioning will be dependent upon ex- 
isting needs of the Army. Most com- ; 
missioning will probably be in the 
combat arms, including the Corps of 
Engineers and the Signal Corps.

Piano Stylings Are 
Templeton Feature 

I No Tampering With 
I The Hemp This Year 

An unusually spirited freshman 
class will attempt to drag the sopho- 
mores through the College Pond mire 
in the annual Rope Pull on Oct. 17. 

The annual event, which will begin 
immediately after the end of the 
UMass - Rhode Island homecoming 
ame, will be once again supervised 
by the Maroon Key, who will have the 
help of the campus police. 

Unlike previous years when the 
second year students resorted to cov- 
• t tactics to give the yearlings a 
muddy bath, no forms of internal 
combustion engine will be permitted, 
nor will the trees be permitted as 
n ooring stations for the rope. 

Although records are not avaiable 
it is believed that the freshman have 
nt won since the first decade of the 
l ntury. 

The frosh, who thus far this year 
av e demonstrated great enthusiasm, 
will have to muster 40 men, as will 
the sophomores.

financial resources avainable to them, 
and of all other pertinent informa- 

Candidates are expected take an 
aptitude test and one of the Advanced

Johnson Releases 
New Draper Rules 

Mr. Johnson, head of the Dining 
Halls reminds students living on the 
Hill that they may eat at Draper if 
1 p.m. is their only hour for lunch. 

In the past, freshmen have climbed 
the hill for months before realizing 
that Butterfield and Greenough do not 
serve at 1. 

Any student who has no free hour 
for lunch is requested to see the 
Schedule Office to relieve the situa- 

The new Dining Commons will be 
opened as soon as possible. Student 
patience with the present crowded 
conditions would be appreciated. 

Air Force NCO 
Joins ROTC Staff 

S|Sgt. James D. Bradley has been 
assigned to the AFROTC Detachment 

He is a veteran of more than five 
years service with the U. S. Air 
Force, including 16 months with the 
20th Air Force on Guam and in Jap- 
an. He was assigned to the Univer- 
sity unit from Henaley Field, Dallas, 
Texas where he was Senior Wsre- 

Sgt. Bradley will take over the du- 
ties of the Assistant Supply Sergeant. 

New Women 'sDorms 
To Have Only One 
Pay Station Apiece 

Permanent telephones will be in- 
stalled at Crabtree and Leach dormi- 
tories by Friday evening, according 
to the New England Telephone and 
Telegraph Company. 

At presstime the two dorms were 
using the phones of the housemothers 
on a temporary basis. These phones, 
however, can only receive calls. They 
are extension numbers 471 (Crabtree) 
and 468 (Leach). The use of the 
phones will be suspended upon the 
arrival of the pay stations. 

The delay in the installation is the 
result of an overcrowded main line 
which cannot carry a bigger load, and 
has thus necessitated running in a 
line from Lincoln Avenue and North 
Hadley Road. 

New England Tel. and Tel. had 
promised to lay additional line for 
new phones on North Pleasant St., 
but have given up the project for 
three months. 

Furthermore, heavy calls for phone 
equipment has resulted in the Univer- 
sity being allocated only two pay 
phones. This leaves the school four 
phones behind, since two each are 
needed for Crabtree, Leach, and the 
Commons, which will open after 

One phone will be removed from 
Draper to the Commons, and the Uni- 
versity will remove another phone 
from an unidentified location which 
does not take in enough revenue. 

This means that Crabtree and 
Leach will have only one pay sta- 
tion each. 

Selective Service

Makes Music Live 

by Kussell Falvey 

Alec Templeton, often called the 
"Incomparable", will uppear here on 
Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 8 p.m. in the 
Curry Hicks Cage, 

His program has been designed to 
please the tastes of the most de- 
manding listener. 

Works of Rachmaninoff and some of 
Mr. Templeton's own compositions 
and improvisations are among those on 
the program to be presented by this 
outstanding figure in the music 

Alec Templeton's renown conies 
not only from being a fine pianist, but 
as an all round musician as well. His 
ability as a COmPOSST has many times 
distinguished him. 

He also has perfect pitch. His abil- 
ity to hear a composition once and 
then repeat it faultlessly is proof of 
the degree to which he has perfected 
this amazing feat. 

Another interesting aspect of this 
concert will be the narration of the 
program by Mr. Templeton himself. 
A new twist to concert performances, 
this should doubly enrich the mean- 
ing of the program for the listener. 

Hort Show 
Early This Year 

The 41 st annual Horticulture Show 
at The University of Massachusetts 
will be held on Oct. 30 and 31 and 
Nov. 1. 

Paul N. Procopio, assistant prof- 
essor of horticulture at the university 
is general faculty chairman of the 

Formerly, the show, which is the 
largest student operated horticulture 
display in the United States, was held 
one week later and it is hoped that 
the earlier date will result in good 
weather. The attendance record last 
year was 21,000. 

Final plans for the event have not 
yet been completed, but displays of 
flowers, vegetables, formal and in- 
formal gardens, trees and lawns will 
be included. 

Award Competitions 
For Fulbright Grant 
To Close Oct. 31 

The closing date of the competitions 
for United States Government edu- 
cational exchange grants for grad- 
uate study abroad is Oct. 31. An ex- 
ception is the program for Australia 
and New Zealand, for which Oct. 15 
is the closing date. 

The programs under the Fulbright 
Act and the Buenos Aires Convention 
are part of the international educa- 
tional exchange activities of the De- 
partment of State. They will give al- 
most 1000 American citizens the 
chance to study abroad during the 
1954-55 academic year.

Yankees Set 
Series Record 

In an exciting Merriwell finish, the 
New York Yankees achieved th>- 
sports feat of the century by winning 
their fifth straight World Series, six 
games to two. 

This feat earned the Champs a 
niche in the record book as the first 
team in history to accomplish this, 
breaking their own previous record 
of four straight, set in 1936-39. 

The sixth and last game ended 
abruptly and glorious for the Yanks. 
Carl Furillo, the pride of Flatbush, 
had blasted out a tie-scoring homer 
in the top half of the ninth, to damp- 
en the spirits of the Bronx boys. But 
with two out in the bottom half of 
the frame, Billy Martin, the hero of 
the scries, blasted a single to NBter 
oft* Clem Labine to drive in the win- 
ning run, sewing up the contest and 
closing the 195:5 season. 

Bums Bounce Back 
The series was a battle from start 
to finish. After disposing of their 
Brooklyn rivals in the first two games 
the over-confident Yanks wen- 
promptly set back on their heels by 
Carl Krskine's 11 strikeout victory 
and Billy Loes' 7 3 Job on the follow- 
ing day. 

However, history was destined t-> 
npeat itself, as Mickey Mantle 
smashed a long grand slam home run 
to account for the third Yankee win 
and Hilly Martin iced the Series with 
his game-winning btafle. 

The series had its share of heroe.-. 
Casey Stengel, the Yank's wisecra-U 
ing manager, laughed himself into his 
fifth straight, becoming the first man 
ager in history to do so. Billy Mar 
tin, of course, proved his mettle whet,

Karl Warren, former governor of 
California, was sworn in as fourteenth 
Chief Justice of the United States on 
Oct. 5. 

Warren, long prominent in Repub- 
lican circles, succeeded Fred M. Vin- 
son, who died on Sept. 8. The cere- 
mony was attended by President 
Kisenhower and Vice-President Nixon. 
Warren holds a commission "to 
serve until the end of the next ses- 
sion of the Senate of the United 
States and no longer, subject to the 
provision of the law." 

This commission means that his 
appointment must be confirmed by 
the Senate at their next session. There

for the first time since assuming of-

Federal Judge Edward Weinfeld is-

equal as possible. 

The council decided that wherever 
the hour hand pointed when the clock 
ran down, the students whose names 
hejiin with that corresponding group 
of letters would be the first to enroll. 
This procedure met with the approv- 
al of Registrar Standlee V. Dalton, so 
it will be repeated each semester in 
the future. 

Enrollment for the fall sessions 
started with the tuvwsyz's because 
that's where the hands pointed when 
the registrar's clock ran down. 

The groups now have a half-hour 
between sections, which allows suf- 
ficient time for everyone to secure

Univ. of Vermont: 
Course of Study Report 

(Burlington, VU L P.)-Capping 
five months of work, the Committee 
for Self-Study in the College of Arts 
and Sciences at the University of Ver- 
mont recently made public its first 

I report. m 

"Courses of Instruction," the first 
of five fields to l>e covered by the com- 
mittee, and under that topic scruti- 
nized the subject of "Distribution Re- 
quirements," the report released 
points out that three outstanding 
weaknesses were noted by the com- 
mittee in connection with the present 
distribution of the student's courses. 

The first of these failings, were the 
K aps in the knowledge of the gradu- 
ating university student. 

Secondly, the present distribution of 
courses gave the student highly de- 
partmentalized and fragmentary in- 
struction, rather than instruction 
which is unified into a single body, the I 
parts of which would lend meaning to 
each other. 

The third weakness noted was the 
lack of provision for a common store 
of knowledge, knowledge which the 
professors believe binds the students 
closer together intellectually, emotion- 
ally and aesthetically. 

To fill out the gap, mentioned as the 
first weakness, by the inclusion of 
more of the existing courses in the 
student's program seemed undesirable 
to the committee.

Redmen of Massachusetts 41-0 in their 
first defense of the Yankee Confer- 
ence Bean Pot. 

Rhode Island, in the meantime, saw 
its eight-game winning streak 
snapped by an alert New Hampshire 
eleven 14-13 before a record Home- 
coming throng at Kingston, while 
Maine remained a factor in the con- 
ference race by defeating Vermont 
13-0 at Orono. 

Maine vs. New Hampshire 
The only conference tilt listed this 
week-end pits Maine and New Hamp- 
shire for the 40th time in the Wildcat I 
Homecoming clash at Durham's Cow- 
ell Stadium. Despite the fact that the 
Cats upended Rhode Island in last 
week's squeaker, and that Maine lost 
to the Rams 13-6, the game at Dur- 
ham is rated as strictly a tossup. In 
addition to a shot at the Bean Pot, 
these two clubs will be fighting for 
possession of the antique Brice-Cow- 
ell musket an alumni-donated trophy 
for this particular game.

Moreover the feeling persisted that 
if the lapses were plugged by an add- 
ed number oi existing courses, the re- 
sult would be even less time for spe- 
cialization and virtually none for elec- 
tive subjects. 

Finally, the knowledge gained, in 
pursuing an increased number of cour- 
ses would still be fragmentary, if 
anything, even more so. 

As a result of its studies, the com- 
mittee has recommended the estab- 
lishment of new courses which would 
be required of all students. Suggested 
courses covered three-four general 
scopes: the physical world; the bio- 
loRical world; the institutional and 
intellectual world; the fine arts realm. 
In addition, the report suggested 
that a course in Communications 
(similar to the present course in Writ- 
ing and Speaking) should be required 
of all freshmen. 

A course in literature was also sug- 
gested for all students. The present 
classes in World Literature could 
meet this need.

Dear Alumni: 

We have been a university for five 
years. Since April 1947 the campus 
has been steadily growing in both 
physical capacity and intellectual 
strength. By 1903 we expect to have 
10,000 students enrolled. 

To accommodate the larger student 
enrollment we have started building 
additional living facilities and a new 
dining commons. The dining commons 
will be put into use in November of 
this year. Two of tb,e new dorms 
forming the women's quadrangle, 
Leach and Crabtree, are now in use. A 
third is in the process of construction. 

M "-V haa been a p p r o p ri ated for an 
additional men's dormitory. 

In the near future construction will 
start on a Public Health Building, a 
new Women's Physical Education 
Building, a Lib Arts Building, and an 
addition to the Chemistry Building. 

Not only does the University serve 
the commonwealth hut it serves the 
nation. Our Engineering department 
is highly regarded throughout the 
nation and graduates of the U. of M. 
have gone on to graduates schools

In proposing a "Fraternity Code" 
the Provost listed the following major 
points for consideration by the frater- 

"1. No gueat shall be admitted to 
a fraternity house except at the in- 
vitation of a member who accepts 
full responsibility for the observance 
of the Chapter house rules. 

"2. The entertainment of women 
quests shall be restricted to the gen- 
eral social rooms of the house. (Which 
shall be only on the first floor and 

"3. Women guests may not be ad- 
mitted to the house prior to 11 a.m. 
and shall not remain on the prem- 
ises after 11 p.m. except on Satur- 
day night when they shall remain 
until 12:30 p.m. 

House Social Rules 
"4. Each Chapter shall establish 
house rules and procedures that will 
insure its officers of opportunity to 
prevent excessive drinking, disorder- 
ly conduct, and the admission of un- 
desirable guests, and shall designaie 
B house Social Committee to assist 

its officers in the enforcement of 

these rules. . . House rules shall he 
publicly posted in the fraternity. 

".-». Effective Oct. 1, only commis- 
sioned officers and members of the 
faculty of the rank of instructor and 
above, and administrative staff are 
to chaperone fraternity social events.

We would like to know just why the frat men are upset is 
it bectlrProvost Mather simply presented the rules, rather than 
conducting the meeting like one of King Arthur's round table ' 
After Ms pesentation he allowed time for <,uest,ons and d.scus-

We teCbSdSX that Provost Mather assumed power 
that was not rightfully his. Perhaps these people have forgotten 
ha The p v ost's position is second only to the president of the 
University, and is above all deans and department heads.

have concluded that there are only four new rules.

To the Editor: 

1 just want to say that I liked 
some of the additions that were made 
in last Friday's edition of the Col- 

There were a few articles about 
other Universities in the country. I 
think it's important for us to know 
what other Universities are doing, 
not only from the point of view of 
interest, but from the point of view 
of measuring the interests and aims 
of UM with other schools. Do you 
think you could include information 
from foreign Universities, too? 

I think the idea of summarizing 
world news each week is good, but 
I'd be interested in some news analy- 
sis, too. I'd like to know what other 
people on campus think of some of 
the major problems that face us 




and we are offering our all out sup- 
port to the boys who play for us. In 
this way we hope to strengthen the 
entire spirit of the school. 

It is easily understood that eight 
girls are unable to cover one hundred 
yards of mobbed stands. Therefore, 
we shall attempt to alternate our 
positions in order to lead every cheer- 
ing member of the stands. Although 
this will be more effective, still there 
is a dire need for a concentrated 
section of rooters as is found at most 
other colleges. 

An area will be designated as the 
cheering section and we want all 
of you who wish to cheer for your 
team and University to sit in this 


Come early kids so that you can 
get the best seats in our cheering 
section. Let's all join together in 
cheering our team on to victory! 

To the editor and the student body 
of the University: 

We the 1953 cheerleaders would 
like to clarify our aims in directing 
school spirit during this year's foot- 
ball season. There are still a few stu- 
dents who think that we are exhibi- 
tionists for the purpose of entertain- 
ing the crowd. This fact is totally 
untrue. We are trying to lead the 
spectators in cheering our team on, 

Letter to the Editor: 

The audience sat with bated breath 
as it watched the agile antics of an 
acrobatic camera fiend during Tues- 
day night's concert. Flashing lights 
and clicking shutters were rhythmi- 
cally interspersed with the classical 
strains of a Chopin Impromptu. Let's 
keep gymnastics out of the classics, 

shall we?

Impromptu Serenade 


New York Times News 

by Dave Seymour 

A stirring panoramic presentation 
of music in the popular and classical 
mood was given by Alec Templeton 
Tuesday night. 

The program which included such 
classic gems as Scarlatti's "Sonata in 
C-major," Chopin's "Mazurka in C- 
Major" and Rachmaninoff's "Prelude 
in G-sharp minor" was mildly re- 
ceived by a near capacity audience 
in the Curry Hicks Cage during the 
first section of the concert. 
"Musical Clowning" 
After intermission when Mr. 
Templeton engaged in some of his 
famous "musical clowning" and im- 
provisation, the audience seemed to 
come alive. 

The first of these numbers was a 
clever interpretation, in jazz tempo, 
of Bach's "Bouree", renamed "Hep 
Hep, Bouree" by Mr. Templeton. 

The high point of the whole eve- 
ning came when the guest artist 
called upon his audience for any five 
notes with which to improvise a tune. 
He proceeded to dress them up in the 
styles of Beethoven, Chopin, Rach- 
maninoff and Gershwin. 

"Ice Cream Topping" 
As the ice cream topping for this 
musical bill of fare, Mr. Templeton 
played a novelty number, "I want the 
name, age, height and size of you," 
which both audience and performer 
got a big kick out of. 

Called back for several curtain 
rails, Mr. Templeton did a "take-off" 
on one of those French "chansonettes" 
in the style of Eartha Kitt which, to 
this reviewer, gave due justice to that 
form of singing. 

All in all. this first regular con- 
cert should have proved rewarding to 
the person who stayed to the end. 

(This artck i$ a report to a con 
stituency. It is the constituency of 
students and faculty who gave their 
financial report to Operation Istan- 
bul, the fund-raising drive held last 
taring. This drive enabled l>r. Mas- 
ivell H. Goldberg to attend at Istan- 
bul last summer the Executive bes- 
,,„„« „/ the World University Serv- 
ice, to which he was called. WUS M 
a humanitarian and cultural organ- 
ization devoted to assisting students 
nil over the world.} . 

Enough financial backing was 
raised last spring to send Dr. Gold- 
berg as the ranking American dele- 
Kate to the WUS sessions. Groups in 
England, France, and England 
claimed his services on the return 


This international service is an ex- 
ample of only one of the many being 
done on our campus. 

Much of the work of the Executive 
Sessions was devoted to routine yet 
complex problems of allocating WUS 
funds to the most needy educational 
areas, and of determining the pro- 
gram and projects for the coming 
year. This is a dramatic demonstra- 
tion, as Dr. Goldberg expressed it, 
of the real work involved when stu 
dents and professors from different 
countries try to lay aside national 
differences for humanitarian coopera- 

In this sphere, the reporter was 
told, Dr. Goldberg had an unusual 
contribution to make. He happened 
to be one of the few American dele- 
gates with long experience in WUS 
work at home and abroad. He was 
called on a number of times to act 
as elder statesman" to give advice, 
to clarify misunderstandings, and to 
reconcile differences both at the Ses- 
sions and in his later travels. 

At the Assembly, too, Dr. Goldberg 
gave two speeches, during the discus- 
sions of the "The University and 

Partly in recognition of such ser- 

vices according to a news release re- 
ceived at the Collegian office, Dr. 
Goldberg was named to the planning 
committee for the 1955 WUS World 
Conference. This will be the first 
major world conference on education 
sponsored by the WUS since 1952. 
President Buell Gallagher of City Col- 
lege was the other American named 
to this committee. 

At Istanbul, Dr. Goldberg was in- 
vited to leadership participation in 
planning for a Western European- 
North American conference on the 
internationally shared problem of the 
liberal arts and education for man 
agerial leadership in business and 

Delegates from the national com- 
mittees from England, Germany, 
France, and the Netherlands invited 
Professor Goldbery to return to their 
countries next summer to speak with 
academic groups in the interests of 
better relations in international Uni- 
versity education. 

One interesting by-product was the 
planning of an international WUS 
Reunion to be held in Amherst in 
1954. It seems that at that time a 
number of Dr. Goldberg's WUS 
friends from widely separated coun- 
tries will be in New England. 

Since his return to this country he 
has reported to the headquarters of 
the Amercian WUS affiliate, and has 
been invited to its executive sessions. 
An indication of the WUS apprecia- 
tion of his services was his reelec- 
tion to the General Assembly. He re- 
ceived the highest number of votes 
in the member-at-large category, ac- 
cording to a news release received by 
the Collegian. 

In Amherst, since his return, Pro- 
fessor Goldberg has spoken to about 
300 at the meeting of the League of 
Women Voters, and has also been 
asked to speak by the Amherst P.T.A. 

Group to Present 'Cavalleria Rusticana 

Mascagni's grand opera, "Cavalleria 
Rusticana", will be staged at the Am- 
herst Town Hall on Nov. 6 and 7. 

Several University staff members 
and students will participate in key 
roles. The tragic opera sung entirely 
in Italian, is being produced by the 
Amherst Community Opera (AM- 
COP) under the direction of Mrs. 
Fiora Contino, wife of Joseph Con- 
tino, director of bands at the Univer- 

Doric Alviani, head of the UM mu- 
sic department, has the lead role of 
Alfio, and Mrs. Anne McLoone, sec- 
retary in the poultry department, 
sings the lead female role of San- 

This is the first time a full- 
fledged opera has been tried in Am- 

herst using volunteer local talent. 

Tickets for the opera will go on 
sale at the C-Store next Tue3., Wed., 
and Thurs. Sale hours will be from 
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

People's Party 
Launches Strike 
In Br. Guiana 

Strike called by the People's Pro 
jrressive Party (PPP) of British Gui- 
ana has all but crippled the sugar 
industry there. 

The walk-out called in retaliation 
for the suspension of the constitu- 
tion and the landing of troops by the 
British in the northern South Amer- 
ican British crown Colony. 

The British granted the colony a 
constitution about six months ago and 
genera] elections were held, putting 
the allegedly communist dominated 
PPP in power. The British charged 
that a communist plot to take ovei 
the country was afoot. 

Former prime Minister Cheddi Ja- 
gan, the party leader, and his wife, 
thfl former Janet Rosenberg of Chica- 
go, 111., party secretary, have been 
noted attending meetings of commun 
is. dominated organizations.

Big Four Conference 
Urged By Churchill 

Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Min- 
ister of Britain urged continued ■! 
forts to arrange a Big Four confer- 
ence in his address closing the Con- 
servative Party convention at Mar- 
gate, England. 

Sir Winston, observed to be in bet- 
ter health than at any time in the last 
two years, felt that such a meeting 
•might do much good and could not 
easily do much harm." However, he 
remained firm on continuing to main- 
tain armed forces in Europe to deter 
any threat of Russian aggression. 

Reviews Economic Progress 

Klsewhere in his speech in a re- 
view of economic progress, Churchill 
pointed to the improved trade balance, 
the derationing of many consumer 
items and the development of new 
housing since the Tories have come 
to power in pointing up differences be- 
tween the Conservative government 
and the former nationalization mind- 
ed Socialist government. 

Also impressions were gained that 
Churchill was prepared to have Brit- 
ain take a greater part in the leader 
ship of Europe. 

Tito Protests U. S. - British 
Move Giving Trieste to Italy 

by Wendell Cook 

The U.N. and Communists re pre democrat 

gcntotivM will meet at Panmunjom 
,,n Oct. 26 to discuss the time and 
local! for the peace talks. 

On Oct. 11, Gen. John E. Hull, 
United Nations commander, visited 
Korea for the first time since as- 
suming command. Observers felt that 
one of the purposes of his trip was 
to speed up the "explanation" pro- 
cedure which all prisoners unwilling 
to return to their homes will have 
to go through. 

Elsewhere, President Eisenhower 
praised the conduct of the Indian 
troops in guarding those prisoners 
reluctant to be repatriated. 

Mr. Burke succeeds the late senator 
Robert A. Taft who died last August. 
He has been Mayor of Cleveland since 
1045 and is noted for his anti-crime 

Nixon on Journey 

Vice President Richard Nixon left 
Oct. 6 on his ten-week 38,000 mile 
good-will and fact-finding trip. 

He will visit 18 countries of the 
Southwest Pacific and Souteast Asia. 
He is accompanied by his wife. 

Th* Trieste question, always threat- 
ening, blew open last week as the 
United States and Great Britain an- 
nounced that they would shortly hand 
that city over to the Italians. 

Yugoslavia's Marshall Tito replied 
with a series of confused moves os- 
tensibly calculated to reverse the 
Anglo-American stand, including the 
cancelling of all leaves and furloughs 
of members of his armed forces and 
threatening to march into the Adria- 
tic port should the Italians occupy the 

Calls For Guarantees Against 

Later, he annealed to the United 
Nations, and asked for a four power 
conference of the U. S., Britain, Italy 
and Yugoslavia in the hope of work- 
ing out an alternate plan. Finally, he 
appeared ready to allow the Italians 
into Trieste provided Yugoslavia re- 
ceived Anglo-American assurances 
against Italian aggression. 

The Trieste area, Including the city 

of about .'100,000, mostly Italians, and 
its hinterland, predominately Sloven- 
ian, is located on the Istrian Penin- 
sula at the head of the Adriatic Sea. 
After its fall to the Yugoslav Parti- 
sans, it was divided into two zones, 
A and B. The U. S. and Great Britain 
occupied Zone A, including the city 
and its immediate environs, while 
Yugoslavia occupied Zone B, the 
coastal area south of the city. 

Was To lie Transferred in 1948 
In 19-18 it was agreed to turn Zone 
A over to the Italians, but the do 
fection of Yugoslavia from the Corn- 
inform and Russia's influence caused 
the reversal. That turnabout liecame a 
major issue in the IMS Italian elec- 
tions and is said to be one of the 
chief reasons for the defeat of Dr. 
Alcide Da Qaaperi'l Christian Demo- 
crats and his consequent inability to 
form a government. 

De Gaspari's defeat brought Amer- 
ican influence in Europe to its low 
est ebb in years. 

It is believed that the Anglo-Amer- 
ican decision was timed so as to help 
to stabilize the present Italian minor- 
ity government. 

Yugoslavs Hold Protest Meetings 
Since the announcement of the 
stand, there have been Italian and 
Yugoslav troop movements in and 
near the Zones. Throughout Y'ugo 
slavia there have been mas.s demon- 
strations and violence has been done 
to American and British consular of- 
fices and information centers. 

Another result has been the em 
liariassinent of Tito's government by 
tSa intercession <>t the Russians on 
their behalf.

Eagles Outclassed 

Outclassed by the .lepth of the 

Btrong I'M harriers, the Eagles could 
capture only sixth place at best. Walt 
Eaton, feature runner of the Chest 
„ut Hill s.iua.l. was no match for the 
quintet Of Matoon and White thin- 
clads who came home en force. 

Good news for the Redmen was in 

the making when Knapp, in his first 

Marl O* the sea on, flashed some or 

that style which made him one of the 
BChonlV outstanding performers last 

Darby P l o w ed 
Coach Leer Derby was also pleased 

no end by the showing of Conway

B quad trampled Worcester Tech 15- 
50, capturing positions one through 
nine, and recording the most impress- 
ive times of the fall. 

Once aprain it was a dead heat with 
six Redman harriers coming across 
in a tie. Co-captains Harry Aldrich 
and Hank Knapp, along with Pete 
Conway, Will Lepkowski. Squeakv 
Horn, and Bill Hoss traveled the

Rounding out the too nine in the 
alleged race were UM runners George 
M -Mullen, Bob Steer, and Fran Pow- 
er. In tenth spot was the outstanding 
Engineer thinclad, Harry Hemenway, 
who prevented a complete whitewash 
by the men of Lew Derby. 

Harvard, the opponent 0< UM this 
afternoon, is the toughest team that 
the Redmen have faced so far, ac- 
cording to Coach Derby. "Our team i. 
rounding into shape," says the trad 
mentor who was pleased after the 
easy win Wednesday. 

AH the rest of the season's mate he

Yearling Gridders 
Clip Springfield 

Two first period touchdowns paved 
the way for the Frosh footballers who 
held on to defeat Springfield, 20-6, in 
Springfield last Saturday in the open- 
er of the Little Indians' season. 

Halfback Dick Wright opened up 
the scoring on an end run which cli- 
maxed a UM march after the kick- 
off. Hal Davis tallied the second TD 
moments later on a similar play after 
a Springfield fumble. 

UM's 14-0 lead held until the final 
canto when the Maroons came up with 
their only score, a long pass play with 
Mel Manuel on the receiving end. But 
the Redmen came back with the final 
score of the evening on a thrust off 
tackle by Roger Baruse, powerful 
right halfback. 

Now that the Little Indians are off 
on the right foot, they are looking 
forward to their first home tussle of 
the year, to be played a week from 
Saturday on the Alumni Field grid- 
iron against traditional rival, Wor- 
cester Academy.

Maroons Edge Redmen 20-7; 
Rex, DiVincenzo Star in Loss 

by Al Shumway 

Two intercepted passes inside the 20 yard line spelled the 
difference as Springfield College handed the Redman football team 
their second straight defeat 20-7, last Saturday at Pratt Field. 

Charlie O'Rourke's Redmen led in all the statistics but the 
scoring department as they battled the Maroons down to the final

Frosh End Second 
In Triangular Meet 

Since Boston College has no Frosh 
cross country team, the UM squad 
was unable to compete in the sched- 
uled match against the Eagles, but 
the yearlings did participate in a 
triangular meet and were defeated 
by a strong Tufts team. 

Running on the three mile Medford 
hack, the Redman Frosh were topped 
by Tufts which racked up 20 points 
to UM's 58, and MIT's 6T,. Dave Dahl, 
a boy who was accepted here, won the 
race for the Jumbos in l. r ):.")7 minutes. 
Scoring for the Maroon and White 
yearlings were Bob Brown, who came 
in sixth; John Walsh, who finished 
t-ighth; Fred Steele, Bill Welch, and 
Bill Crawford. 

This afternoon, the Frosh will a- 
gain try to show their wares at the 
Franklin Field grounds, where they 
will meet Harvard in a preliminary 
'o the varsity race. Coach Lew Derby 
hopes to round out a good squad to 
replace 3ome of his varsity veterans 
who will graduate.

Intramurals Begin This Week 

The 1953 touch football intramural 
season will get under way this week 
under the supervision of Sid Kaufman 
and Mel Massucco. 

The program will operate much the 
same as last year with two leagues. 
League A will be composed of all the 
fraternities, while teams from the 
various dorms will make up League B. 

All fourteen fraternities are en- 
tered while twelve teams make up 
the second froup. Many of the dorms 
have engaged two squads. 

The season will run from Wednes- 
day, Oct. 14 to Friday, Nov. 13. At 
the close of the regulation number 
of games the winners of both leagues 
will meet for the school champion- 
ship. Last year Theta Chi with a 
record of 12 and 1 topped the fra- 
ternities, while Brooks A led the 
other league with a 9 and 1. Brooks 
A also walked away with the college 
championship in a thrilling 19-fi vie 
tory in the playoffs.

The fates seemed turned against 
the Redmen from the very outset. On 
the first play from scrimmage after 
the kick-off, Frank Jacques pass was 
deflected by the hard charging Spring- 
field line and landed in the arms of 
guard Dave DelGuidice. He made it 
to the six-yard line where he was em- 
phatically stopped. 

The UM line dug in, and after three 
tries, the Maroons found themselves 
hack on the nine. However, on fourth 
duwn, Joe Chandler, a thorn in the 
Uedmen's side all afternoon, sped 
around right end for the six-pointer. 
Ron Rouleau booted the extra point to 
give the Gymnasts a quick seven 
point lead. 

Redmen Fight Back 

However, this bad turn of events 
didn't make the Redmen quit. The 
O'Rourkemen came roaring down the 
field. A penalty set them back, and 
they finally relinquished the ball to 
Springfield on the gymnasts 23. On 
the second play, the Redmen line came 
crashing through and hit Chandler 
hard enough to make him fumble. Lou 
Kirsch promptly fell on the ball to 
give the Redmen first and 10 on the 

On fourth down, Billy Rex, who 
played one of the greatest games of 
his collegiate career, slipped through 
the line and eel-hipped his way to pay 
dirt. Buster DiVincenzo who shared 
running honors with Rex, parted the 
uprights for the tying point. 

Fatal Final 

The Maroons broke the game up in 
the final period when they scored a 
brace of touchdowns — one of which 
was legitimate. 

Shortly after the final canto opened, 
Nona Morris, the Gymnasts ace 
l>reak-away runner, intercepted one of 
Frankie McDermott's passes and 
made it first and 10 on the UM 19 
I yard marker. The Maroons came up 
with a isecret weapon in the form of 
soph fullback Hal Kenyon who burst 
down the middle on the first play for 
the score. This time the extra point 
was missed and gave the Redmen 

Late in this final quarter, Spring- 
field started a drive from their own 
48 to put the game on ice. Joe Chand- 
ler provided the key run of this series 
with a 32-yard dash that put the ball 
Dn the four yardline. Chandler car- 
ried the ball around left end for the 

D. Rouleau kicked the extra point 
o make the score 20-7. 

Never Gave Up 

The Redmen were deep in Spring- 
ie!d territory when the final whistle 
•unded. Steve O'Brien flashed good 
Jassing form during this drive. He 
:ompleted two consecutive aerials 
*hich gained a total of 46 yards. 

Highlights of the afternoon were 
he sensational running of Buster Di- 
cenzo and Billy Rex, the great all- 
>und play of Tony Chambers, and 
yeoman work of the Redmen 
i — in particular that of Al Gilmore. 
>ne of the key factors in the Ma-

Freshmen Dunk 

In Tug O War 

J. I*. Lane 

The frosh dragged the sophomores 
to damp defeat in the annual frosh- 
soph rope pull at the campus pond 
Sat. afternoon. 

Showing, phenomenal, self-control, 
the freshmen waited through one 
false start; then, at the sound of 
the opening gun, the entire freshman 
class swarmed about the hemp and 
pulled the sophs from the west shore. 

The sophs soon realized that their 
forty chosen tuggers were inadequate, 
when the frosh added extra men to 
aid them in the struggle. The soph 
forces massed too late to check the 
momentum and save a dozen of their 
number from a chilly dunking. 

It is uncertain who won the "fight"' 
after the game, since it was imposs- 
ible to distinguish between muddy 
frosh and muddy sophs as they tossed 
each other into the water indiscrim- 
inately. The frosh had the initiative 
here too, for they charged over to the 
soph side at the first sign that a few 
men were being manhandled there.

The class is about evenly divided, 
with 19 members working for the can- 
didacy of incumbent Daniel Brunton, 
and the remainder working for Re- 
publican Wendell Chamberlain. 

Several students are working on a 
special project — that of breaking 
down the precinct vote in Spring- 
field since 1940. The statistical break- 
down will include the voting for all 
city, state and national elections. At 
present no such analysis is available 
to Springfield politicians. 

This is the first time that such a 
project has been tried out at the Uni- 
versity, and Prof. Goodwin is using 
this year as a test run for next year's 
national and state campaigns. 

Before the campaign got into full 
swing the students helped to get the 
voters to register for the primary. 
They also helped with office work and 
some of them have been given a 
chance to write campaign literature. 

By the end of Election Day, Nov.

ten a report on the particular phase 
of the campaign that he is to cover, 
and the results will be combined and 
distributed to the entire class.

Police Display Car 
On Amherst Common 
As Student Warning 

Reported to be still in critical con- 
dition following a near-fatal auto- 
mobile crash at the Mill Valley 
Bridge in Amherst last Saturday was 
Henry J. Finik, Jr., of Chicopee Palls, 
a freshman at the U. of M. 

Finik, a commuter, sustained a frac- 
tured skull, broken hip, broken should- 
er, broken arm, and possible internal 
injuries when the car he was oper- 
ating, an M.G. English sports model, 
failed to negotiate a curve near the 
Mill Valley Bridge by the Grist Mill. 

Excessive speed was determined to 
be the cause of the accident by Am- 
herst police officers Crossman and 
Jaci|ue and Chief Engelmann. 

After making the curve at the 
bridge, the light sports car swerved 
ofT the road, narrowly missing a tree, 
spinning over, and hurtling into a, 
gulley. Finik was then catapulted out 
of the wreckage on to the ground, 
where he was discovered soon after. 

Skid .Marks 240 Feet 

Police said skid marks measured 
240 feet from the bridge to a tree 
in front of the nearby Thompson res- 
idence where the automobile was 


The sports car, resembling an ac- 
cordian, was placed on display in the

Newly-Chosen UM Cheerleaders 
Bring Beauty and Noise to Games 

MTRP Brings Back 
Aggie Mountain Day 
On Armistice Day 

by Rita Katz 

Cheerleading on campus has set as 
its goal, "more bounce to the ounce". 

For years the cheerleaders have 
been pleading with the stands to back 
up the team with a few resounding 
yells. The usual reaction has been one 
of complete indifference or of good- 
natured kidding. The decibels have 
been noticably decreasing, but new 
things are happening. 

Of the 25 girls that tried out for 
this year's cheering team, the eight 
who mad* the grade were chosen by 
Joe Contino and last year's captain 
on the basis of experience, ability, and 
suitability. Girls who can make the 
crowd want to cheer are the ideal 

In addition to having the competi- 
tors run through a cheer, each girl 
was given a thorough interview to de- 
termine if she were the cheer-provok- 
ing type. 

Once the leaders are chosen, the 
problem of selecting cheers and mo- 
tions presents itself. Lengthy and 
high-schoolish yells are taboo; where- 
as peppy and rhythmic cheers are the 
order of the day. Clever innovations, 
such as the choo-choo of the Massa- 
chusetts cheer, are the girls own 
brainstorms. Knowing when and what 
to cheer are abilities that come only 
from experience.

An all campus outing to the Mt. 
Toby Forest, similar to the Mountain 
Day of Mass. Aggie, will be held 
Nor. 11, Armistice Day. 

The outing will lie sponsored by 
the Mount Toby Recreation Project 
with assistance from Isogon, the 
Scrolls, WAA, Maroon Key, an*! 

The prgram will be based on the 

assumption that most, students have 
not previously been to Mt. Toby. 
Conducted hikes to the scenic spots 
will start the program, after which 
those attending will lie on their own. 
Draper To Provide Lunch 

Athletic equipment will be provided 
and a meal will be brought from 
Draper at noon. After lunch, activ- 
ity will center around the Adirondack 
Shelter area. 

Those who wish to go should be at 
the Phys. Kd. parking lot at 10:00 
a.m. Transportation will be provided. 
It is requested that anyone with ex- 
tra room stop by the parking lot.

Patti Page, the best female seller 
of records, has run the gamut from 
a hillbilly singer on a Tulsa radio 
station just a few short years ago 
to a miss who consistently hits the 
best-seller lists each time she sings 
a new song for Mercury Records. 
While the first few months on wax 
she sounded like every gal singer, 
(usually iust like the one who had a 
hit), she soon found her own style. 
She made her biggest success, via the 
aid of tape, on her double-voice ren- 
ditions on such tunes as Tennessee 
Waltz and others. For three years 
she made $65 weekly until she 
snagged her first hit, With My Eyes 
Wide Open I'm Dreaming. Since then, 
the singer has seldom sold fewer than 
300,000 copies of any record she has 
made, and, of course, quite a few of 
her patters have gone past the 
1,000,000 mark.

To the Editor: 

Cooperation was the key note at 
the annual frosh-soph rope pull last 
Saturday. With a little more coopera- 
tion this duel could have been the best 
in years. 

I was under the impression that a 
system had been set up whereby each 
contestant was to receive u sweat 
shirt and pants in the men's locker 
room of the cage. These were mainly 
to facilitate identification of the con- 
testants and to enable removal of 
those who would join in afterwards. 
The use of this equipment was re- 
fused at the last minute along with 
the use of lockers for valuables. With 
the aid of the police, this could have 
been the fair and square contest which 
it was meant to be if the provisions 
for identification had been carried out. 
Perhaps, with more cooperation, 
next year's rope pull can be the type 
of event which the visiting alumni 
expect to sec.

WMUA News 

by Gordon Mirkin 
lend an ear to this! WMUA has just 
the program for you— Music Box in 
Blue. This show features a throaty- 
voiced gal, named Phyllis, with some 
very dreamy music by such artists 
a< Mantovani, Percy Faith, Les 
Brown and others. So boys, if you 
want to catch a very interesting half- 
hour of radio time, by all RMSai lis- 
ten in to Music Box in Blue this 
Wed. at 9:30. 

WMUA announces that it is form- 
ing a new radio-dramatic group with 
the aid of the Roister Doisters. 
dramatic series of short plays 
be produced by Mr. George Fermage, 
under the technical direction of the 
WMUA staff, and completely made 
up of RD personnel. 

As in past years, WMUA is pre- 
senting up to the minute national 
and international news, in conjunc- 
tion with the New York Turns News 
Service, nightly at eight o'clock and 
again at eleven o'clock. 

To clear up many of the miscon- 
ceptions as to the broadcasting pol- 
icy of the station, Dr. Field, as ad- 
visor to WMUA, has prepared the 
following statement. 
Resolved : 

"That the campus radio station 
will be operated in such a way as 
to serve and meet the needl and in- 
terests of the student body. 

"That the primary aim of WMUA 
is to serve the student body of this 
University. Their needs and inter- 
ests will be of first concern in all 
station operations. Every effort 
be made through opinion 




Religious Type Tunes 

The hullabaloo around music cir 
cles these days is on religious-type 
tunes. They are outselling all the 
ballads and upbeat songs. Success of 
/ Believe started off the most recent 
push, followed by Crying in the Chap- 
el and now Patti Page has come out 
with The Lord's l'rayer on wax. Most 
of the big names have one or more 
numbers of the same type 




and encouragement of student 
ugjrestions and participation to fulfill 
this obligation."

in-Ethel Merman taping from the 
Ford 50th Anniversary TV show, more 
of the same type of records is being 
looked for. However, the material 
isn't always as great as this duo. Of 
course, jazz impressarios have been 
doing this for years. 

Stan Kenton will head the "Fes- 
tival of Modern American Jazz" with 
Errol Garner, June Christy, Dizzy 
Gillespie, Stan Getz and Slim Gail- 
lard. Tour starts Nov. 1, and will 
last a month, hitting most of the 
major cities except New York, where 
Kenton played a concert Sept. 26. 
Some of the most famous musicians 
pooled their talents on a recent rec- 
ord date for Clef Records. Session 
included Lionel Hampton, Oscar Pe- 
terson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich 
in a rhythm section. Front line was 
composed of Flip Phillips, Illinois 
Jacquet, Ben Wewster, Johnny Hod- 
ges, Dizzy Gillespie, and Roy Eldridge. 
After that cutting Rich flew to the 
West Coast to do another star- 
jammed waxing with Count Basie, 
Freddie Green, John Simmons, Stan 
Getz, Wardell Gray, Harry Edison, 
Buddy DeFranco, Willie Smith, Ben- 
ny Carter, and Arnold Ross. 

Jo Stafford signed a $1,000,000 con- 
tact with CBS for a TV show. 
Singer has had several programs in 
the past but has never done a na- 
tional video show. Peggy Lee, who 
was to be the bright, shining star 
with Warner Brothers after her de- 
but in The Jazz Singer last year, has 
been dropped. That leaves Doris Day 
the only chirper on the lot. Stand 
far, far back: Spike Jones is in his 
first film opus in five years. The 
madcap joins Abbot and Costello in 
a harum-scarum pic called Fireman, 
Save My Child. Cornel Wilde is get- 
ting into a composer's rut. He played 
Chopin in A Song to Remember 
few years ago and did such 
job, assisted by the unseen fingers 
of Jose Iturbi, that he got a recall 
to do the same role for the upcoming 
Columbia film, Story of Franz Liszt. 
All the vocal recordings have finally 
been done for the Judy Garland re- 
make of A Star is Born, and the 
singer started film production last

Some students have complained of 
the conflict of hour exams with Con- 
cert Association dates. This is a per- 
ennial problem, and the solution de- 
pends on the faculty-student relation- 
ship in working out these matters, 
rather than an administration ruling. 
The problem also comes up during 
rushing, big social weekends, etc. It's 
up to the students and their instruc- 

The Collegian does not send a re- 
porter per Be to musical events on 
campus, but the newspaper sends a 
reviewer or critic. It is the assign- 
ment of this reviewer to interpret the 
music, stage presence, audience reac- 
tion, etc. as HE SEES IT and hears 
it. The Collegian welcomes criticism 
in sympathy with, or in opposition to 
the critic's analysis in the form of 
letters to the editor. If students feel 
they are better qualified than our re- 
viewer, they are welcome to join in 
competitions for staff membership, 
and later to represent the newspaper. 
What is the purpose in making the 
rope pull a "fair" contest if it no long- 
er holds any significance? It was 
formerly the deciding factor in hav- 
ing freshmen continue to wear their 
beanies until the Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion. Since the beanie is usually dis- 
carded by the end of the first week, 
what purpose does the rope pull 

We hope that the girls turn out in 
better numbers for the Sorority Round 
Robins than the frosh men did for the 
Fraternity tours. We also wonder if 
they are as worthless as the Frater- 
nity Round Robins? 

Congratulations to the students who 
worked so hard for the float parade, 
and especially to Adelphia and Iso- 
gon. It was the best one in years.

A powerful Rhode Island football team scored three touch- 
downs and coasted the rest of the way to whip the Redmen before 
5500 Homecoming Day fans 41-14. 

Little Bernie Pina, speedy Ram halfback, gave a spectacular 
demonstration of running, particularly in the first period. In this 
period, he carried the ball three times for a total of 61 yards. He 
gained 14 yards the first time he 
carried, to set up the first RI score. 
Two plays later, Pina took a pitch- 
out from Fratto, the Ram quarter- 
back, and raced around left end 27 
yards for the first Ram TD. 

Only minutes later, Pina repeated 
this same play only this time from 
the 20 to give the Rams a 13-0 lead. 

Best Run 

The prettiest run of the day was 
in the last quarter, when Pina re- 
ceived a pass from Fratto on the UM 
30 and proceeded to give an excep- 
tional exhibition of footwork which 
left the Redmen defenders flat on 
their faces as he danced away for the

The O'Rourkemen threw a brief 
scare int othe Rams in the third per- 
iod. The Redmen took the opening 
kickoff and marched quickly down the 
field for their first score on Alumni 
Field this year. Buster DiVincenzo 
provided the main ground punch for 
this scoring drive, while Tony Cham- 
bers provided the aerial punch by

drove the last five yards for the score 
on an off-tackle slant. Buster DiVin- 
cenzo kept his perfect record of 
points after going by splitting the 
uprights with his boot. 

The next time the Redmen got the 
ball, they drove to the Rhode Island 
seven, where the march petered out. 
This was probably the turning point 
of the game, as the Redmen at that 
point nearly had the Rams on the

Barous Stars 

Rugged Roger Barous smashed 
through for two half touchdowns at 
Alumni Field Saturday, when the UM 
Frosh came up with their second con- 
secutive grid win, 13-0 over Monson 

After a first half which saw a con- 
tinuous exchange of punts, the Little 
Indians got rolling in the third period. 
A drive of 81 yards followed the kick- 
off, the march lieing climaxed by Bar- 
ous' eleven yard thrust off tackle. 

Monson March 

Monson's forces then launched a 
drive of their own which carried to 
the Maroon and White's 25, but this 
was halted by some smart line play 
on the part of the Men of Massucco. 

Following more punts, the UM 
forces intercepted a pass and turned 
it into a subsequent TD as Barous 
traveled from the 38 to paydirt on the 
next play. 

Friday the Little Indians will enter- 
tain Worcester Academy here. The

Boston Conference 

Professor Arthur E. Niedeck of the 
Speech Department will attend the 
AMTA Convention in Boston Sat., 

Oct. 17. 

This conference is attended by 
those interested in drama througout 
New England. 

The theme of the gathering will be 
"The Theatre Audience", with the 
main speaker being Leland Hayward, 
the producer of such hits as "South 
Pacific" and "Point of No Return". 

The world's most famous towers are, left to 
right, the Eiffel Tower, the Tower of London 
and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. 

But in America, the tower-come-lately (ex- 
treme right) may rapidly become as familiar 
as the old landmarks of Europe. It is one of 
the Bell System's radio-relay stations which

the enthusiasm of the fans.

and it is usually no problem to get a 
rousing cheer from tin ng «*'

in the other direction, though, and the 

Tans automatically dam up. 

At this point, the cheerleaders used 
to plead for a little mora! support and 
usually the only cheering around was 
for the cheerleaders to do cartwheels. 
However, "The old order changeth, 
and yieldeth place to new." The cheer- 
leaders will plead no longer. They are 
there to keep the cheering unified and 
to check on whether we are able to 
outyell the stands on the other side.

Trustees Vote to Limit Future University Enrollment 
Pending Completion of Proposed Classroom Buildings 

Coed Attacked Near Abbey; 
Assailant Sought By Police 

A University sophomore was at- 
tacked by an unknown assailant out- 
side Abigail Adams dormitory at 8:40 
last Tuesday night. 

According to reports given to the 
police, the girl was approached by a 
denim-clad man, who asked her the 
directions to Mills House, and then hit 
her on the head with a blunt instru- 
ment. The coed fled into the dormi- 
tory. Her cries attracted the attention 
of an Amherst College sophomore, 
who chased the man, but lost him in 
the darkness. 

The girl was taken to the infirmary, 
where she was treated for a lacer- 
ation of the scalp. It was expected 
that she would be released Thursday, 
according to the infirmary. 
Police Investigate 

Both the campus and town police 
investigated the matter, and at press 
time the search was still going on. 
Several leads had been tracked down, 
and more were still in the process of 


To all Presidents of Clubs, Soror- 
ities, Fraternities, Campus 
Drives, and Organizations: 

For all your activities the Col- 
legian, reaching all students, is 
the best publicity organ. 

Isogon and Adelphia have a 
duplicating machine which may 
be used by two registered rep- 
resentatives of your organization. 

fn order to gain efficient publi- 
city service from the Collegian, 
and to be able to register for the 
use of the duplicating machine, 
your organization must be repre- 
sented at a meeting held for all 
publicity agents. 

This meeting will be held Tues- 
day, Oct. 27 from 7 to 7:30 p.m. 
in O. C. auditorium. 

Please see to it that your rep- 
resentatives are there. 


The assailant was described as 25 
yean old, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 
dark hair and complexion. Ho was 
wearing blue jeans and a blue denim 
jacket at the time of the attack. 

The campus police have requested 
that all University coeds walk in pairs 
and keep to well lighted streets 
while traveling on campus at night. 

The police have requested that any 
person having any information what- 
soever which might pertain to the 
case notify the Dean of Men or the 
Dean of Women, the campus police, 
or the Collegian immediately. 

Blood Drive 

Under the sponsorship of AFROTC 
the American Red Cross will be on 
campus for their annual fall blood 
drive on Dec. 8 and 9. 

Donors must be over 21 years old 
or if they are 18 they must have a 
release signed by their parents. Re- 
lease slips can be gotten from your 
house drive chairman and mu3t be 
returned to him as soon as it is 

The Red Cross unit will be in op- 
eration from 9 am to 3 pm and will 
be able to handle 228 donors on each 
day of the drive. 

If anyone in a student's family 
owes a supply of blood to a blood 
bank, he can aak as many people as 
necessary to donate their blood to 
be accredited to his family's account. 

They have stopped fighting in Korea 
but blood is still needed desperately 
by the Red Croas for use in veterans 
hospitals, civilian emergencies, and 
for gamma globulin, which is still 
the only means of checking polio. All 
we need is your cooperation and the 
drive is sure to be a success.

UM To Maintain Admissions Standards 
Slower Expansion Program To Continue 

by Dave Seymour 

"The Board of Trustees recommends a program of limitation 
of immediate future enrollments based upon housing accommoda- 
tions completed and authorized and upon classrooms and equip- 
ment needed to accommodate the numbers of young people cur- 
rently admitted." 

Thus ran the policy resolution passed by a special emergency 
session of the Board of Trustees called in the Governor's office in 
Boston last Wednesday to deal with the problem of an expanding 
enrollment and inadequate facilities at the University. 

The Board clearly recognized the need for a low cost State 
University "second to none" in this commonwealth but also noted 

that the present physical plant needed

Thirteen cents and $450 provoked 
the only controversy at a quiet Sen- 
ate meeting Tuesday. 

Book Store Prices 
The thirteen cents was the figure 
cited by Senator Ceil O'Donnell as 
being the overhead per book dollar 
charged at the University bookstore. 
The $450 was the amount proposed to 
be used to pay a secretary for doing 
he Senate's office work. 

Miss O'Donnell told the Senate 
hat every dollar's worth of books at 
wholesale price cost the students 95 
• nts. A breakdown of the figures re- 
used to her by Augustine Ryan, 
ookstore manager, showed that be- 
cause of quantity purchases the store 
received a 20 cent discount on every 
iollar. Two cents is paid for trans- 
lation charges, and 13 cents for 

$450 For Office Clerk 

Earlier in the evening Paul Wood- 
bury introduced a measure whereby 

the Senate would appropriate "no 
more than $450" to pay a secretary to 
do the Senate's office work. Wood- 
bury stated that the president of the 
Senate and the committee heads were 
overburdened with correspondence, re- 
ports, and other written records. 

According to the proposal the sec- 
retary would be paid 70 cents per 
hour and would work no more than 
25 hours per week. Vice president 
Rita Katz questioned Mr. Woodbury 
and sought to have the $450 maxi- 
mum limit reduced. The motion, how- 
ever, went to the Finance committee 
without changes for study. 

After the meeting was adjourned 
the Women's Affairs committee chose 
Doris Adams chairman. Ted Kehoe

To The Editor: 

To The Editor: 

There has been recently a reference 

to the "spirit" of the freshmen class. 

It's supposed to be the best in years. 

A potent question now arises. What 

has happened to this spirit? 

I am referring, of course, to the 
rope pull held last Saturday. The 
sophomores, represented by the Mar- 
oon Key fellows, had promised for 
the first time in years 
square rope pull. Sure some equip 
ment was left out as mentioned in 
a letter in Tuesday's Collegian, but 
the basic rules were still there and 
the cops were on hand to keep the 
contestants, especially the sophs (who 
were expected to cheat) , in hand. The 
Key did a swell job in doing their 
best to give each side a fighting 


So what happens? No sooner did 
the two sides start pulling than 
scores of frosh piled on the rope 
and pulled through the water the 

forty sophomores 

to their part of the bargain. 

As a sophomore, I feel that I am 
speaking for many of my classmates 
when 1 say that I would have pre- 
ferred to see my class lose in a fair 
fight rather than to a dishonest foe. 
The sophs gave the frosh every chance 
for a fair and honest win. The class 
with all that "spirit", not even ap- 1 
preciating what they'd done, merely 
proceeded to laugh in their faces. 
I suppose the freshmen are pleased 
. I with their victory, but I know that 
we sophomores should be and can be 
proud of the fact that we were deal- 
ing honestly off the top of the deck. 
We're at the top! Long live the true 
sportsmanship and spirit of the 
sophomore class!

Dulles Asks MtM»ting NY Senator Explains 

New York, Oct. 20. A range of Arthur H. Wicks, New York State 
world problems from Korea and Indo- Senator, compared his visits to a con- 
China to Germany, Trieste and Israel victed extortionist to the willingness 
were discussed at the Big Three For- I of this nation's leaders to confer with 

eign Ministers conference last week 
affording to John Foster Dulles, U.S. 
Secretary of State. 

In a speech delivered before the 
New York Herald Tribune Forum, the 
Secretary of State called on the Sov- 
iet Union to demonstrate good faith 
on the unification of Germany by 
accepting an American-British-French 
proposal for a Big Four conference 
on that problem. 

He characterized the Anglo-Ameri- 
can proposal to turn the city of 
Trieste over to the Italians as part 
of a policy to bring Italy and Yugo- 
slavia closer together in plans for 
the defense of Southern Europe. 

Dulles said that the meeting had 
decided to turn the question of bord- 
,i violations between the Arab states 
and Israel over the United Nations. 
Referring to Korea, he said that the 
policy agreed on was to preserve the 

In referring to the negotiations be- 
tween the French and the Indo- 
Chinese Dulles stated that they are 
•designed to advance the aspirations 
of these people and also to rally them 
against Communist enroachment." 

Racing Scandal 

A church group charged that the 
n.ute for the Y.nkers section of the 
New York to Buffalo thruway was sel- 
e.ted to provide toll free direct access 
to the Yonkers Raceway. 

The group further said that the 
route would reel ?l'2,oon,000 more 
than an alternate route. The chair- 
man of the state Thruway Authority 
denied that race track officials influ- 
enced the choice of the highway route. 

The charge was brought to light 
during the course of an investigation 
of hiring practices and ownership of 
harness racing groups in Nassau 
County. The groups are accused of 
hiring ex-convicts and giving them re- 
sponsible positions. 

The investigation has also linked 
important political figures with the 
ownership of the tracks. 

Arab Border Unrest P. O. W. Exchange Hits Snag 

As Both Sides Wrangle 

the Communists in a state wide tele- 
cast Oct. 18. 

Wicks, who is mapority leader and 
president pro tern of the state senate 
and acting Lieutenant Governor of 
New York termed his visits to lab 
leader Joseph S. Fay, convicted for 
extortion of contractors who recog- 
nized his union, as being in the inter- 
est of "labor peace". 

The Senator made these statements 
on a state wide television broadcast 
after he was asked by Governor 
Dewey for an explanation following 
the publication of a list of visitors 
to Fay at Sing-Sing Prison. The ex- 
planations given to Dewey in a visit 
shortly after the publication were 
termed insufficient by the governor. 

Wicks indicated that he would sub- 
mit his resignation to the state sen- 
ate when it reconvenes and ask for 
a vote of confidence. 

McCarthy At Monmouth 

Ten Signal Corps Employees were 
suspended at Fort Monmouth last 
week as the result of an inquiry by 
Senator Joseph R. McCarthy's Senate 
investigating subcommittee. 

The suspensions, for "security rea- 
sons", followed charges by McCarthy 
that important scientists at the Sig- 
nal Corps' laboratories were closely 
connected to the Rosenbergs, who 
were executed as spies last summer. 

Other information uncovered by 
the closed-door investigation was that 
about 50 secret government documents 
were missing from Ft. Monmouth 

A series of raids and counter raids 
across the Jordan-Israel border wa> 
brought to the attention of the United 
Nations this week as the Arabs pro- 
tested an attack upon an Aral) village 
by alleged Israeli Army forces. 

In the latest attack, which was 
made against three Arah villages 
Arabs claimed that more than 50 Jor- 
danese were killed. The Israelis claim 
that the raid were in retaliation for 
the murder of a Jewish woman and 
her child last week. The Arabs have 
appealed to Iraq for troops and planes 
for the border guard. 

Elsewhere in Israel, on the Syrian 
frontier; the Syrians claim that the 
Israelis have started construction on 
a new power dam. The dam is being 
built in a demilitarized zone, and the 
Syrians claim that the dam will de- 
prive Arab lands of needed water. 

Sewer Line Condemned 

New York, Tuesday, Oct. 20. A 
third of a mile of main trunk sewer 
line was condemned by Queens bor- 
ough president James A. Lundy. 

The four year old line was found 
not to have been constructed accord- 
ing to specifications. Lundy said that 
the condemned portions, costing about 
$<>(>0,000, would have to be entirely 

The investigations showed that the 
concrete content was about 85* I low. 

Last week the Communists began 
interviewing the prisoners of war 
whom the United Nations command 
reported as unwilling to go home. 

After 20 days of UN-Communist 
wrangling over persuasion procedure 
the interviews got underway. How- 
ever, the disagreements continued. 
The Communists claimed that they 
were not being given a fair chance to 
persuade their reluctant fellow coun- 
trymen to return home. They said the 
UN observers were interfering with 
their interviews. 

The UN command claimed that the 
Communists were subjecting the pris- 
oners to undue pressure and that the 
Indians, who supply the custodial 

forces and act as Chairman of the re- 
patriation Coin mission, were allowing 
the Chinese explainers too free a 

only shout 2% of the prisoners 
have so far chosen repatriation. Ob- 
servers said that most have reacted 
with violent hostility to the Chinese 
persuaders. At last report, the inter- 
views could not he continued because 
the North Korean POW's refuse to 
move to the explaining tents. 

Indian custodians expressed hope, 
but not confidence that they could 
persuade the North Koreans to attend 
the explanation sessions and thereby 
resume progress toward a final settle- 
ment of their fate. 

West Seeks Trieste Parly 

Marshal Tito has announced that he 
will accept Italian sovereignty over 
the city of Trieste providing Jugo- 
slavia receives the rest of the dis-

Meanwhile, the United Nations Sec- 
urity Council has deferred debate on 
the matter for two weeks, in order 
that the west may seek direct nego- 
tiations on the matter.

McCarthy Cleared 

Senator Joseph R. McCarthy was 
cleared of charges of election fraud 
after an investigation by the Justice 
Department, Attorney Genera] Her 
bert Brownell announced on Oct. 17. 

McCarthy, Republican of Wiscon- 
sin, was accused of unlawful inter- 
vention in the I960 senatorial race 
in Maryland in which Republican 
John Marshall Butler defeated the 
incumbent Democrat Millard Tydings. 

However, Brownell added that Mc- 
Carthy's income tax statements are 
still being examined. 

Churchill Wins Prize 

Sir Winston Churchill was an- 
nounced winner of the 1953 Nobel 
Prize for literature. 

The 79 year old statesman-prime 
minister, warrior and author of 27 
books was selected for his "historical 
and biographical presentations and 
for the scintillating oratory in which 
he has stood forth as a defender of 
eternal human value." 

Churchill is the third Britisher to 
receive the literature prize; the others 
were Rudyard Kipling and George 
Bernard Shaw.

Democrat Elected 

Lester R. Johnson, a Democrat, was 
elected to the House of Representa- 
tives in a by-election in the ninth dis- 
trict of Wisconsin. 

The election, which sent the first 
Democrat in 20 years from that dis- 
trict to the House, was viewed by 
Democrats as being indicative of the 
farmers' opinion of the farm policy 
of the present administration. 

The Republicans pointed out that 
the former representative, the late 
Merlin Hull, Johnson's Republican op- 
position and Johnson himself were 
former members of "Old Bob" La- 
Follette'g Progressive Party. 

First Honors 

This boat crew disgruntled proper Bostonians at Harvard College in 
1871 Four years after the founding of the college, the crew from Mass. 
Aggie competed with Harvard, Brown and others on a three mile boat race 
-and won! The shell which carried the six victors is now suspended from 
the Drill Hall ceiling. 

The 1901 team wrote the school's first page in notable football history. 
The team won 8 out of 9 games among which were matches with Wesleyan 
and Holy Cross. Seven of the 8 conquered teams were held to zero scores. 

The Young Men's Fancy 

Coeds have a sparse history until the 1920's. One girl graduated with 
the classes of 1875, 1896, and 1903. In 1905 two f' 1 ' ^ ei ^. a ^Jj" 
degree and one a master's. In 1915 a sorority was founded, and in 1919, Miss 
Edna Skinner became head of a Home Economics department. The girls 
next attacked the extracurricular sphere when, in 1920, the three girls who 
were in the senior class were asked to take parts in the Roister Do.ster ^play. 
During the twenties, Mary Boyd became editor-in-chief of the Collegian, 
and the girls had arrived. 


Razoo Night which is pictured above, was an annual affair in the thirties. 
The freshmen and the sophomores met in hand to hand combat with the 
intent of a good free for all. The ultimate aim seemed to be to strip as 
much of the clothing off the opposing class as possible. 

Thirties and Forties 

Frosh of the thirties suffered until Thanksgiving. Wearing of beanies 
was enforced as was the custom of hopping the numerals on the campus 
sidewalks. Freshmen were required to light the cigarettes of upperclassmen 
on request. Seniors and Maroon Key could stop a freshman anywhere and 
demand that he sing the Alma Mater. 

The campus of the thirties also had a full cavalry stable of horses which 
upperclassmen were allowed to ride. The Nightride was a tradition of the 
era that died in the middle of the decade. Qualified student contestants were 
given a horse, a marked map. and a flashlight on the night of the contes,, 
and sent off on a journey of an hour or two. The first to successfully com- 
plete the circuit was awarded a trophy. 

For much of World War II, most of the student body was composed of 
the 58th College Training Division of the Army Specialized Training Re- 
serve The coeds and 4-F's were the only students not in uniform. The so- 
rorities moved into the then empty fraternity houses, and French House 
took over Alpha Gamma Rho. After the war, the increase of students was 
so great that some of the vets found residence upstairs in Mem hall audi- 

What's In A Name 

Until 1931 there was perennial agitation for changing the name of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural Collegr. In that year, it became Massachusetts 
State College. A new agitation met with success in 1947. A student effort 
in that year organized committees, made great use of the Collegian, sent 
the Chorale to sing before the legislature and succeeded in making the col- 
lege The University of Massachusetts. But that is a story in itself. 

The ancient history lesson is over and class is dismissed.

Massachusetts' reeling lU'dnien will 
run up against the top small college 
team in the East as picked by the

Northeastern Huskies this Saturday 

in Boston. 

The injury-riddled Indians will be

as they try to hreak out of their 
three-jrame 'losing streak. The chances 
of this happening are poor and the 
strong easterners rate a tbree touch-

Rob IVjfault, and Al GttmOTC are on 
the shelf with various ailments whih 

ning 19-0, will be out to prove their 
lofty position in the ranks over the 
second place Rhode Island Rams, who 
trounced the Itedmen last Saturday. 
Most of their hopes will fall on the 
shoulders of fullback Sid Watson, 
their talented running machine.

Here ore two points to remember when you buy o new eorl . . 

The game was characterized by 
plenty of injuries and pretty sloppy 
playing by both sides. 

Simpson Starts 

Clarence Simpson, who scored both 
of the UMass goals turned in the one 
great performance of the day. His 
first goal was scored on a penalty 
shot in the third period. Soon after he 
was benched with a leg injury. Clar- 
ence bounced back in the fourth pe- 
riod to score his second goal. 

Both ball clubs worked hard for 
their goals, except for Brown's first 
tally, which was eased in by Brown 
Co-Captain "Chic" Swanson. The oth- 
er good play of the game was Brun- 
onia's Danny Chu's goal in the thin! 
period, a play in which goalie Boh 
Cornelius was expertly faked out of 

Tighter Offense Needed 

It seems that the Briggsmen could 
have done better if the defense were 
tightened and the back field covered. 
Although Capt. Paul Puddington led 
the defensive play, there were too 
many shots getting through. The Red- 
men wasted a lot of scoring oppor- 
tunities which, if put to use, couM 
have meant a different hall game. 

Tomorrow the team play Trinity 
at Trinity. Let's hope for a victory 
this time.

I Just Want The Facts 

I've got a hunch, and sometimes a hunch pays off and sometimes it 
doesn't pay off, but you have to play a hunch. My hunch is that the Massa- 
chusetts coaching staff and players are now wishing that the two platoon 
system had not been abolished in favor of the single platoon. 

You don't have to take a strawberry shortcut to see that the tackling 
and the blocking has not been up to par. Here are the facts: The adjustment 
to the offensive as well as the defensive and vice versa has been too much. 
Changing from a good double platoon club to a good single squad is a tre- 
mendous job. Finding a quarterback who can play defense has been the 
major problem on all the college teams. Finally there's the task of making 
the players digest not only offensive signals but defensive assignments as 


Now the chief asked me to quiz some of the suspects who have been 
romping all over Alumni Field these last weekends. The first two frilled 
were named Tinsley and Amendola, a couple of Huskie youths from UConn. 
Both were mainstays on the defense last year and look what they did to the 
Kedmen offensively. The third one was "Slick" Pina, Rhode Island's Buddy 
Young. He was also found to be patrolling the defensive backfield for the 
last two years. Those are the facts, chief. What you mean to tell me, Gordon, 
[i that you've got a hunch. Yes chief, sometimes a hunch pays off and some- 
times it doesn't. 

* e • e 


Defensively there wasn't a player better than Don MacPhee last Sat- 
' urday. Don has been the shining ilght in the shady line. Sophomores Red 
Johnson and Johnny Hassell also showed that the future may be brighter 
with a willingness to take that leather and really go with it regardless of 
what blocking they got. —The most pitiful sight of the game was seeing 
Steve O'Brien throw his shoulder out on the second defensive play in the 
first period after he had worked all week polishing his offensive talents. 
—That, one paper said, was the first time Rhode Island ever used the split-T 
and with the success shown Coach Hal Kopp should be a great fan of Bud 
Wilkinson, originator of the tricky offense.

It has been one of my ambitions in this column writing to print Satchel 

Paige's incomparable philosophy on how to stay young which was released 

in Colliers some time ago. The ageless thinker, more known for his pitching 

prowness and endurance feats, has summed up his entire study in these six 

jsage sayings. 

1. Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood. 

2. If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool 

3. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move. 

4. Go very light on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social 
(ramble ain't restful. 

5. Avoid running at all times. 

6. Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.

Sorority Round Robins 
To Be Held This Weekend 

. Sorority Round Robin Teas will be 
held Sat., Oct. 24 from 1:30-5:30 p.m. 
and Sun., Oct. 25 from 1:30-5:30 
and 6:30-9:30 p.m. 

The freshman girls will be divided 
alphabetically into three groups and 
taken to all the sororities by the Pan- 
hellenic representatives. 

The first group will go Saturday 
afternoon, the second Sunday after- 
noon, and the third Sunday evening. 

Being as I am in one of my more 
mellower moods, I will lay off any 
attempts at constructive criticism, 
and giveth praise to them that de- 
serves it. 

In particular, I will enlighten you 
about the scrappiest and highest 
spirited athletes on the University 
campus. Perhaps because of this high 
spirit, they are also the only unde- 
feated team on the vampus. As you 
have undoubtedly guested, I am re- 
fering to the cross country team. 
Practice Long Hours 

About all the average student 
knows about this team is that they 
see scantily clad athletes running to- 
wards the general direction of the 
Cage late each afternoon. What the 
average student does not know, is 
that these boys are just finishing a 
course which is between 4'/i-5 miles 

While the football team practices 
during the week in relative obscurity, 
comes Saturday afternoon they are 
the glory boys and perform before 
thousands of spectators. However, the 
harriers run their five miles daily in 
obsclrity and when they run in com-

Splendid Record 

They say that facts speak for 
themselves, so here are a few fig- 
ures. Coach Derby's boys have won 

by AI Shuntway 

four straight meets thia year. Two of 
these were shutouts and one was a 
near shutout. The other win was 
against Harvard, one of the most 
powerful teams in the East. In the 
last 16 dual meets, the Redmen have 
won 14 — the two losses coming at the 
hands of Harvard and Yale last year. 
The harriers have won two consecu- 
tive Yankee Conference titles and ap- 
pear to be destined to make it three 

The Harvard meet is the best ex- 
ample of the competitive spirit of 
this team. Sophomore "Squeaky" Horn 
edged out co-captains Harry Aldrich 
and Hank Knapp to take second 
Then There's Harry 

Another colorful character on the 
team is Co-Captain Harry Aldrich. 
Harry has been an outstanding per- 

former in all track events since he 
entered the university. Harry is one 
of those hollar guys who ia happieat 
at seeing his team win no matter 
where he places. 

Co-Captain Hank Knapp is another 
outstanding competitor. To look at 
him, one would never guess that he 
was one of the best cross country 
men in New England. He runs with 
a long loping stride that seems effort-

What really makes this team click 
besides the spirit is the depth which

two road races which were each 12 
miles long.

1025 Freshman Class 
In commenting on this action the 
Provost stated that next year's fresh- 
man class would probably be 1025 as 
compared to the 1170 figure this year. 
He pointed out that unless the phys- 
ical plant is modernized and enlarged 
our academic standards must suffer. 
"We are not interested in size alone; 
we are interested in quality not quan- 
tity," he said. 

He described LA Annex, one of the 
buildings to be replaced as "A pile of 
navy wreckage in back of South Col- 
lege which would be condemned by 

any sane man who walks through it." 
Furthermore, he pointed out that it 
was "criminal negligence not 'Yankee 
thrift' to continue using" th* build- 
ings which are to be replaced. 
Short Range Policy 
The program of smaller enrollments 
is only to be a temporary short term 
policy and the long range policy as 
outlined by the trustees is one of edu 
eating as great a percentage of the 
qualified students of this Common- 
wealth as is possible by the continued 
expansion of the University facilities. 
At the present time only 33.7% of 
the students applying for admission in 
1953 were accepted and this figure 
has been going down consistently 
every year because of the lack of 
classroom space. 

This is a situation consistent with 
"Jeifersonian not Jacksonian democ- 
racy" according to Mr. Mather. 

The budget now goes to the Genei 
al Court where favorable action is 
necessary to make the expansion pro 
gram a reality.

provides broad opportunities 
for chemists, physicists 
and engineers cooperating 
on many problems. 


For one thing, much Du Pont re- 
search is fundamental, aimed at ad- 
vancing scientific knowledge regard- 
less of specific commercial objectives. 
However, such research often sug- 
gests new products . . . each with its 
own challenging technical problems 
which must be solved before com- 
mercial production can begin. Solv- 
ing these problems offers another 
great field of work for teams of en- 
gineers and scientists. 

"Teflon" tetrafluoroethylene resin 
is an example of this well integrated 

Doing chemical engineering research on a plate 
in a distillation tower are: C. Af . Gomel, Jr., 
S.M.Ch.E., M.I.T. '48; and J. B. Jones, 
M.S.Ch.E., Univ. of Mich. '46. 

Howard E. Holmquint, Ph.D. in Or*. Ch- m . 
Univ. gf Minn, ft, is shown at work on a 
problem In yntri.tir organic chrmUtry. 

During research on refrigerants, 
the polymer was discovered and work 
was begun to make it useful. The new 
plastic had a remarkable combina- 
tion of properties; temperature re- 
sistance beyond the range of any 
previous plastic, excellent electrical 
characteristics, and the highest de- 
gree of chemical inertness of any 
commercial plastic. 

In fact, "Teflon" was almost too 
unusual. Although it melts, it is too 
viscous to flow like other plastics. It 
does not dissolve— even in aqua regia. 
There was no method for molding it 
or for making it into thin coatings. 

The problem of molding was solved 
with the help of techniques used in 
powder metallurgy. "Teflon" is now 
molded by cold pressing, followed by 
sintering or "fusing" at about 360 C. 

Research worker* have available modern appa- 
ratus, such as the infrared spectrometer beinn 
used here by Vautthan C. Chambers. Ph.D. 
Or*. Chem., M.I.T. '50. 

For coatings, previous research 
suggested dispersions— minute par- 
ticles suspended in a liquid. After 
much study, a team of technical men 
learned how to suspend particles of 
"Teflon" about 1/125,000 of an inch 
in diameter. Then a commercial scale 
process was devised. This develop- 
ment made possible thin coatings of 
"Teflon" and also a process for ex- 
truding the material. 

Meanwhile, another group discov- 
ered how to successfully formulate 
the new plastic into "Teflon" tetra- 
fluoroethylene resin finishes and wire 

The development of "Teflon" illus- 
trates the close teamwork that is the 
basis of research a£ Du Pont. But 
this teamwork doesn't end with re- 
search. Bringing the product to com- 
mercial reality requires development 
and design work by chemists and both 
chemical and mechanical engineers. 
Next month's pigest will feature in- 
formation on the opportunities Du 
Pont offers men interested in this 
phase of making "better things for 
better living . . . through chemistry."

Carousel Cast 
Stars Murdock 
In 'Julie 9 Role 

by Cindy Taylor 

Jean Murdock, '54, returns to the 
Bowker stage in the leading female 
role of "Julie" in the Operetta Guild 
production of Rogers and Hammer- 
stein's musical play, "Carousel." 

The dates of performance of "Car- 
ousel" are March 8, 9, 11, 12 and 13. 
On Wednesday night, March 10, there 
will be no performance. 

"Carousel" is based on Ferene Mol- 
nar's play, "Liliom". The central char- 
acter, "Liliom", in the play becomes 
"Billy Bigelow" in the operetta. This 
part will be played by Norman Far- 
well, T>5, who appeared as the "Lead- 
er" in the Chorale production of "Lost 
in the Stars" last spring. 

Another veteran of the Bowker 
stage is Mary Judith Haird, '54, who 
was "Lau> Mary" in "The Vagabond 
King" production last spring. Mary- 
Judith will be seen in the role of 
"Carrie" in "Carousel".

Provost Mather Officiates 

WUS Members Confer at Smith 
On World Education Problems 

Provost Jean Paul Mather presided 
over the World University Service 
(WUS) Regional Conference of all 
Connecticut Valley colleges, which 
was held at Smith college last Sat- 
urday. Light U. of M. students were 

Chiefly a preparation for the col- 
lege Campus Chest drives such as the 
one that mill he held on our campus 
next week, world-wide educational 
seeds and methods of campus fund 
raising were discussed. The need for 
friendship among students as ground- 
work for friendship among peoples 

was another problem to which the 
conference attempted to give some an- 
sw rs. 

WUfi end (am pus Chest 

ways to combat the poverty of India. 
There is, however, literally no place 
for them to live, no books, and little 
food." He described like conditions in 
Delhi, Agra, and other cities. 

A WUS film, "This Is Their Story", 
revealed that Creek students work 
several hours each day typing arid 
mimeographing copies of the few 
textbooks so that all may study. Films 
and discussions of foreign student 
illustrated like problem* in othei 

Friend or Fas 

Friendship among nations or lack 
of it was the other theme of 

Professor James Prentice of Mi 
s i> a non-governmental organ- llebury, in the opening speech, kicked 

isation supported hy colleges and oth- 
ei itudent interested groups of many 
count lies in the Western Hemisphere, 
Eorope and Asia. It receives the larg- 
est percentage of the funds raised in 
the Campus Chest at U. of M. as at 
most other American colleges. This is 
because it is one of the few charities

with no recourse to community aid. 
These funds are used to help allevi- 
ate the needs of students in many 

No Rooks, No Rooms, No Food 
What are the needs? is the ques- 
tion the conference attempted to an- 
swer. Conditions in India were des- 
cribed by a Dartmouth student, a vis- 
itor there last summer. "In Dacca," 
he said, "2,000 students are eager to 
be included at the University to learn 

iff the problem by pointing out tl 

we face today a "race between . 
cation and catastrophe." 

Use Your Imagination 
"We need in our colleges a elimata 
in which foreign nations may feel con- 
fidence and our own people will find 
greater security." He suggested that 
\V" must, U college students learn to 
think and reflect, and also to use im- 
agination: "Try to see the world as 
Malcnkov sees it" ... or again, "If 
you were the French prime minister 
with two million dead in a war with 
Germany" . . . Self centeredness, he 
said will kill us. 

All discussions at the conference 
stressed that students should not give 
money to the WUS as a handout, but 
from a deep concern "for, with and 
about other peoples."

(Re: Vonald Hanson'* letter COL- 
UDSUN, Oct. 20, 1933). 

As one of the "visiting alumni who 
expect to see a fair and square rope 
pull* at the annual homecoming to 
the University, I would like to say 
that the Alumni expect no such thing. 
The annual Freshman-Sophomore rope 
pull has ALWAYS been a competi- 
tive event won by foul means, if 
necessary, by the sophomores. 

This year's pull was conducted with 

K »od grace and a minimum of unfair 

advantage to the winning freshmen. 

! Doth teams exhibited far more good 

sportsmanship than has been exhibi- 

pants have 
own sports 
clothing and arranged for their own 
protection of valuables. 

To those who are protesting the 
failure to have gymn clothing, locker 
space, and other comforts adding to 
the "fair and square" pull, may I 
say, What more do you want? Warm

To the Editor: 

It was very gratifying to see that 
in the last issue of the Collegian that 
the editor took interest in WMUA to 
the point of offering some criticism 
on two points. Namely, our an- 
nouncers and a presence of dead air 
calling for Western Union clocks. 
Since the beginning of last year we 
have been pleading to the campus to 
make known their suggestions con- 
cerning the station and at last one 
person's opinion appears in print. 
Congratulations, maybe more will be 
spurred to write. However, it seems 
a shame that the editor had such a 
poor source of information in writing 
this first criticism. 

It is evident from the facts that 

WMUA on the Air 

by Gordon Mirkin 

This weekend WMUA is celebrating 
the first anniversary of its dedica- 
tion as a non-commercial, educational 
FM station. 

In honor of this event, which co- 
incides with the annual Horticulture 
Show, WMUA is extending its reg- 
ular schedule to include complete cov- 
erage of the Show. The high point of 
the three day exhibit— the crowning 
of the Queen— will be broadcast Fri- 
day at four p.m. and again Saturday, 
following the football game. 

Continuous music will be played 
throughout the weekend, when the 
regular WMUA programs are not 
on the air. This music will also be 
piped into the Cage to entertain the 
expected crowd of over twenty thous- 

FOOTBALL: in response to the 
demand for more complete sports cov- 
erage from WMUA, we are trying 
to make arrangements to broadcast 
the November seventh football game 
with New Hampshire direct from the 
stadium in Durham. 

The big game with Brandeis this 
weekend will be aired as usual Sat- 
urday, starting at five minutes of 


The Publicity Department of 
WMUA will be sending out circulars 
in the near future. The purpose of 
these circulars is to find out what 
the students like, dislike, and expect 
of the station. This is the best meth- 
od we have of giving the students a 
voice in the management of WMUA. 
When you receive them in your dorm 
please fill them out conscientiously 
for they will determine much of our 
future broadcasting policies. 

Briggsmen In Upset Victory 
Over Trinity, Hoelzel Scores 

A highly-favored Trinity soccer 
team went down to defeat on its home 
rield last Saturday as the Redmen out- 
played and outscored them 2-0. 

UM's first goal came in 3 minutes 
of the third period on Bud Bauchiero's 
,hot, and the second goal came three 
minutes later on "Limey" Hoelzel's 
boot from 20 yards out. 
Team Victory 
In the first two minutes of the game 
Trinity missed its first attempt at a 
score, and it seems as if that broke 
the team's spirit. From then on, the 
Briggsmen outplayed them on the of- 
fensive and held them fast on the de-

Ken Crooks handled the halfback pos-

and Clarence Simpson shared the 
laurels with Hoelzel. Goalie Tom Cor-

Harriers Win 


Everything but the kitchen sink 
was thrown in the way of the Fresh- 
man cross country team last Friday, 
but they managed to overcome all ob- 
stacles and go on to their first win, 
a 26-31 triumph over Williams at 

Holes in the track, rocks, wet 
leaves, and a dark sky were just a 
few of the problems the yearlings had 
to put up with. But after Ted Tipo of 
the Ephs led the way, the Massachu- 
setts boys followed. 

Steele Second 
Fred Steele finished second after 
getting lost in the course of the 
course, followed by Bob Brown of UM, 
who also didn't follow the straight and 
narrow path. 

Walsh Fourth 
Fourth was Jack Walsh, whose first 
scoring effort just about meant the 
first victory for the harriers. Williams 
captured positions five through Beven, 
but Walt Eagan and Bill Welch scored 
in eighth spot for the Derbymen. 

The next meet for the victors comes 
Thursday across the town, where 
UMass meets Amherst with hopes for 
win number two. 

Harriers Whip Williams 20-35 
To Remain In Undefeated Class 

Williams College offered no partic- 
ular opposition to the University's 
unbeaten cross country squad Fri- 
day when the Redmen racked up win 
No. B, 20-35 on the Williamstown 
course. The win prepped the Derby- 
men for the big Yankee Conferene > 
championships coming up next Sat- 

Co-captains Harry Aldrich and 
Hank Knapp, along with Squeaky 
Horn, led the pack, recording a time 
of 21:25.3 in the easy win. Fourth 
was UM's Pete Conway, while Frank 
Power, who finished tenth, was the 
other Massachusetts scorer. 
Lepkowski Excused 
According to Coach Lew Derby, it 
might have been another perfect score 
for his charges had Will Lepkowski 
been there. The fleet Soph stayed 
home, nursing a slight cold. 

Ronnie Rice, Williams Captain, was 
the first man to break the tape for 
the Ephs. He finished fifth and led a 
parade of five teammates who notched 

sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth po- 

Kedmen Prepared 
Only one more dual meet remains 
for the Redmen. that with Yale m 
two weeks. Coming up now are the 
Yankee Conference race, the Connec- 
ticut Valley and New England meets. 
UMass is ready and is bringing their 
5-0 record into the Yankee match as 
topheavy favorites. 

Last year the Derbymen were gun- 
ning for their second straight cross 
country crown in this conference. Now 
they are after number three, a feat 
never before performed. The strong- 
est opponent looks to lie Maine, but 
none of the other schools have un- 
blemished marks. The Williams Sum-

House Lounge at 3 p.m. will include 
talks by Provost Mather, Dean Rand, 
and Dean Emerita Skinner. Also par- 
ticipating in the program will be 
Pauline Stephan '54, house chairman 
of Leach House, and Dorothy Horse-

Committees of Student residents 
of Leach and Crabtree will act as 
hostesses for the tea and conduct 
tours of the two new dormitories. 

Gochis took Barisano's place when 
the latter had to leave the game in 
the second period as the result of the 
contact lense in his eye being broken. 

Chambers Scores 

The Redmen broke into the scoring 
column first by capitalizing on the 
recovering of a fumble by John Mc- 
Gowan on the Huskies 26 midway in 
the second canto. Buster - DiVincenzo 
and Jack Poller moved the ball to the 
8 on two plays. Tony Chambers made 
a circus catch of Frank Jacques pass 
in the end zone for the score. Buster 
DiVincenzo kept his streak going by 
booting his seventh consecutive extra 
point to give the Redmen a quick 7-0 


However, shortly after the kick-off, 
a pass play from Barisano to Toyias 
covered 58 yards for the six pointer. 
Watson's boot for the extra point was 
good and tied up the game. 

The next time the Huskies got the 
ball, they scored again, this time on 
J a 43 yard pass play from Barisano 
to Korey. 

Johnson Goes 100 
The final score for the Redmen 
came late in the third period. Don 
Johnson intercepted one of Gochis' 
passes* in the end zone and raced 100 
yards down the sideline for the TD. 
Jerry Walls kicked the extra point.

up to his pre season billing as he was

half, Chamber's alert thinking really

two Huskie fumbles.

Aggies Win 19-6 

Over Nichols Jr. 

The Stockbridge football team 
whipped Nichols Jr. College 19-6 last 
Saturday bringing the Aggies' season 
record to two wins and two losses. 

Nichols scored first in the second 
canto when Buttonhauser slipped 
over from the five for the TD. The 
extra point was missed and the Bi- 
sons led 6-0. 

Bickford tied up the game for the 
Aggies on an end sweep from the 
23 shortly before the half ended. 

After a scoreless third period, tho 
Stockbridge team broke the game 
open in the last quarter scoring a 
brace of touchdowns. A pass from 
Lundquist to Barber broke the tie, 
and Barber's boot for the extra point 
gave the Aggies a 13-6 lead. 

Stockbridge salted the game away 
shortly after when Barber cut off 
tackle and with good interference 
went all the way for the final score. 

Touchdowns— Toyias 2, Korey, Wat- 
son 3, Johnson, Chambers. 

PAT— Watson 4, Toyias, Walls, Di- 

Although the Huskies line out- 
weighed the Redmen line, they did not 
outcharge them. This is an even 
greater surprise as the Huskies have 
one of the best lines in New England. 
Impressive Showing 

The backfield of Joe Phelan, Johnny 
Hassell and Hal Bowers looked very 
impressive during the time they were 
in the game. 

Coach Charlie CRourke must be 
seeing number 41 in his nightmares. 
Three teams have rung up that num- 
ber of points against his charges this 
year, and the score for the last two 
games has been identical — 41-14.

GOOD CONNECTIONS are mighty important to us 
for, you see, we make more than a billion elec- 
trical connections each year. It takes that many to 
manufacture and install complex telephone equip- 
ment in the Bell System. 

That*! «hy the revolutionary new method of making 
electrical connections without solder - a method 
created by Western Electric engineers together with 
their teammates at Bell Telephone Laboratories - 
is indeed one of the significant engineering achieve- 
ments of recent years. 

Like most really creative engineering jobs, the de- 
velopment of a tool to make solderless connections 
grew out of a problem. We had to find a way to 
connect our newly designed wire spring relay to 
other components in giant bays of switching equip- 
ment. This new relay-something of an engineering 
achievement itself - can have as many as 36 ter- 
minals in an area only 1-3/8" by 1 1/16". Obvious- 
ly, the conventional method of hand-wrapping and 
soldering wires onto the terminals is extremely dif- 
ficult in such a small area. 

Aftsr room than five years of research and experi- 
mentation, the engineers came up with a pistol-like 
power tool capable of making mechanically sound

solderless connections. Shown above are two types 
of "wire wrap" tools now used at Western Electric 
manufacturing locations. They literally shoot wire 
onto terminals ... and do it surer, faster and less 
expensively than conventional methods using solder. 
That's not all. The new "wire wrap" tool keeps 
equipment free from solder splashes, wire clip- 
pings and reduces bent and distorted terminals. 
Electrically, the "wire wrap" tool gives a far better 
connection than can be made manually ... the high 
pressure contacts are stronger, cleaner, more com- 
pact and more uniform. 

In keeping with the Bell System policy of sharing tech- 
nical know-how with all industry. Western Electric 
will make this tool commercially available to 
electrical manufacturing companies, such as radio, 
television and communications producers, through 
licensed tool manufacturers. 
You're right if you think we're more than a little 
pleased with our accomplishment. And as wc have 
been many times before, we're proud of the engi- 
neers in all fields - electronics, mechanical, elec- 
trical, metallurgical, chemical, industrial - who 
uphold our reputation for leadership in fundamen- 
tal manufacturing techniques.

Campus Chest Begins Drive; 
Contributions Given to WUS 

This is the first in a series of 
articles hrinniiin the student the story 
of the group* which Mi Cmiijpmi 
Chest donation serres. 

Don't pass the Buck, (live It! — 
Oaea For All!" 

The annual Campus Chest Fund 
drive, U. M.'s yearly campaign for 
contributions to a number of chari- 
table organizations is scheduled for 
next week, Nov. 2-6. 

Beginning Monday with posters, 
dorm graphs, WMUA coverage, and 
other reminders, the Drive will con- 
tinue through Friday. Senators will 
collect in all dormitories, and Pan- 
Hellenic and Interfraternity collectors 
will visit sorority and fraternity mem- 

The Drive makes solicitation of 
funds by earh of the individual groups 
served unnecessary, for in donating 
to Campus Chest, the student Rives 
to each of the following: World Uni- 
versity Service, United Negro College 
Fund, Negro Scholarship Fund, Save 
the Children's Fund, American Friends 
Service Committee, Hampshire County 
T. B. Fund, Infantile Paralysis, Heart, 
and Jimmy Funds. 

Or the $1,452. collected in last year's 
appeal, plus $300. profit from the 
Campus Chest Dance, over $900. was 
given to the World University Ser- 
vice Fund. 

Working under the philosophy of 
"helping them to help themselves", 
students around the globe are working 
on the twofold project of international 
friendship and understanding, and the 
provision of educational facilities. 

Food and clothing, a place to sleep 
and work, medical care, funds to pay 
their University fees, books and labor- 
atory equipment are just a few of 
the aids WUS gives to students in 
ASIA, the Middle East, Europe and 
North America. 

In the United States the WUS pro- 
gram sponsors conferences, seminars, 
the UNESCO Gift Coupon Program, 
Exchange Student programs and the 
assistance to D.P. students. Formerly 
the World Student Service Fund, 
WSSF recently became an official 
Committee of the World University 
Service in the USA.

Senators Win; 
Bermudas Legal 

The Battle of the Bermudas has 
ended — and for the girls, successfully. 

Dean Helen Curtis told the Women's 
Affairs committee of the Senate that 
the wearing of Bermuda shorts would 
no longer be restricted by the Ad- 
ministration. House councils, however, 
will be able to pass special regulations 
about the wearing of the shorts in the 

Otherwise, the girls may wear them 
"at their own discretion". The new 
rule replaces the regulation that pro- 
hibited the wearing of Bermudas in 
the "library, dining halls, adminis- 
tration buildings, class rooms, or fac- 
ulty offices.*' 

The Senate passed two appropria- 
tion bills. Three hundred dollars was 
appropriated to pay a secretary to 
perform the Senate's oifice duties. The 
secretary will be paid 70 cents pel 
hour, and may not work more than 
25 hours a week. 

Two dollars were appropriated to 
pay for the cleaning of the table- 
cloths used at the Senate's coffee hour 
four weeks ago. 

A motion by Senator Paul Marks 
to have the Senate back a move to 
build more parking space was ap- 
proved. By the action the Senate went

To The Editor 

To the Editor: 

Every fall, while the football team 
is not performing as well as antici- 
pated, the student body is subjected 
to the absurd statement that "all the 
team needs is more school spirit be- 
hind it!" 

It was the spirit of the student 
body that brought about the change 
from a State College to the Univer- 
sity, it was the spirit of the students 
that made all the blood donor cam- 
paigns, campus chest donations, and 
booster days successful, it was the 
student spirit that made it possible 
for Dr. Goldberg to be a delegate-at- 
large for the World University Serv- 
ive in Istanbul last year. 

The student body has never failed 
to respond with "spirit" to any 
worthwhile stimulus. 

As far as the school spirit being 
I responsible for the lack of astronom- 
ical scores on our football field, I 
submit a quote from Hy Hurwitz' 
column October 24 edition of the 
Boston Globe. 

"According to Rhode Island coach 
Harold Kopp, whose club played at 
Amherst last Saturday, the UMass 
rooters are the most enthusiastic and 
most rabid of any that he has ever 

Let us stop blaming student spirit 
for the lack of an AU-American team 

on campus.

To the Editor: 

Again a complaint— this time about 
Draper. I am not complaining about 
the food. I know how over-crowded 
Diaper is and how hard it is to feed 
so many under such poor conditions, 
but I do wish that the servers in 
Draper would perk up and clean up. 
In particular, I am thinking of one 
girl who constantly arranges her 
hair, pats her face, straightens her 
uniform, and then serves the food. 

This same server has the habit of 
picking up bits of food that have 
fallen astray and popping them either 
in her mouth or on a plate, as the 
whim of the moment moves. 

I hardly need to say that this per- 
formance is not appreciated by those 
of us standing in line waiting to be 
served. Once again, I appreciate prob- 
lems, but after all there is no need

What's Your Alma Mater?? 

"What University are you a student of?" Mrs. X asks 
"The University of Massachusetts," you answer confide otly _ 
Is that really the whole answer? The arrival of the annual 
Campus Chest suggests that a phrase should be added. 
P «_ . . AND OF THE WORLD." 

We say should be added because we at UM are not very prone 
to add it WE'll give a few dollars to the annual Campus Chest 
next w ^through the year, we'll try to glance at «™£ 
or at Time magazine to see what other nations are do ng to us 
but that will probably be the extent of our concern for the re.t 

of the world. 

Dollars and Cents vs. Friendship 

Money and gifts are needed desperately. This we are in no 
dangVi of forgetting with the Campus Chest drive next week. 
Money cannot replace friendship, however, much as we like to be 
uTJ rhirt it can We forget that friendship rests on mutual undei- 
^^^W^** of your friend's troubles a willingness 
o Sslen'to hissL of the story, a curiosity ^"™£^' 
•ind feels To buy someone coffee every morning and immediate^ 
tie him with it does not bring friendship, though the person 
mav be verv glad for the coffee. 

Likewise foreign nations must be made to feel that we AS 
PEOPLE no as a government (for the motives of a governmen 
T naturX suspect), are interested in them. <~^° 
them and perhaps most important, are curious about them « 
they do not feel there is a possibility of mutual 7^ ndl "* 
and friendship with our nation, they will look elsewhere for 


Topen yo°ur ? mind! Try to see the world as Matenkov sees 
it That was the way Professor Prentice of Middlebury put .t at 

Smjt 2 h C ST^ about the ideas, beliefs and back- 
grounds of foreign peoples. Books, lectures, and the meetmgs :o 
?he International Relations Club are only a few of the things 

""i^Talk" ith'ome of the more than 30 foreign students on 

T It is easy enough to criticize. Emphasize ™>.rstan<Ung 
foreign points of view instead. Let the criticism come later-.t 
will come without your effort. 

5. Write to students overseas. But DON'T DO IT unless you 
will continue the correspondence. A few hastily written ^ let er^ 
followed by a long, disinterested silence, does more harm than 

good. —

Repatriation processes have been

Speculation concerning a future 
farm price support program and far- 
mer unrest throughout the mid-west 
were the main topics of discussion in 
Washington this week. 

During the presidential election the 
Republican party promised to amend 
the present price support program 
which was adopted as a wartime meas- 
ure. It is felt that this system is too 
high and too rigid to serve lioth the 
farmers and the consumers. 

Secretary of Agriculture Kzra Taft 
Benson has indicated that he will op- 
pose the extension of the present sup- 
ports and try to introduce a new, more 
flexible plan. The secretary feels that 
his proposals will receive administra- 
tion backing. 

Wisconsin Chooses Democrat 
Farmer unrest made itself known 
by two spectacular events. First, Wis- 
consin's ninth district sent a Demo- 
crat to the House of Representatives 
for the first time since the Republican 
Party was formed. Elated democrats 
felt that this indicated that the farm- 
ers want the continuance of the pres- 
ent program and are not in a mood to 
think of another program which might 
thin their pocket books. 

Second, a group of 3200 farmers 
from lU) mid-western states made a 
protest trip to Washington, where 
they talked to Benson alxtut u cattle 
price support program. However, Ben- 
son said that "they did not present a 

Over the past few years, farmer.-. 
have been caught in a price squee/.e 
which has been hardest on the one- 
crop farmers west of the Mississippi. 
Consequently, this group is outspoken 
for continuation of a high price sched- 
ule. While cattle prices fell, the situ- 
ation with the cattlemen is that the 
price of cattle feed has remained 
steady, because of Rovernment sup- 

Income Kails 15%, Pricen 4% 

it is estimated that income from 
farm sales have fallen 15% while 
farm costs have fallen only 4%. It is 
pointed out that while most of the fall 
occurred in the late years of the Tru- 
man administration, the Eisenhower 
administration has done little to stop 
the fall. 

It is expected that a program will 
be submitted to congress this autumn 
or winter so that machinery may lie 
ready for next fall's harvest and elec-

smokers in those colleges preferred 
Luckies to any other cigarette. 

This year another nation-wide survey

students in regular colleges -shows that 
Luckies lead again over all brands, regu-

The No. 1 reason: Luckies taste better. 

Smoking enjoyment is all a matter of 
taste, and the fact of the matter is Luckies 
taste better -for 2 reasons. L.S./M.F.T.

Wilde Tally Twice 
In Fourth Win 

Coach Larry Briggs' Redmen soc- 
icer team blasted out their fourth vic- 
tory of the season and their second 
| in a row Wednesday with a convinc- 
I ing 8-8 win over Clark University 
on the slippery turf of Alumni Field. 
Clarence Simpson, Ed Monaghan 
and Ken Wilde were the individual 
stars for Massachusetts, scoring two 
goals apiece. Saul Schanbei g was out- 
standing for the Scarlets, booting 
home all three of the visitors' scores. 
Wednesday's victory was the most 
decisive one the Briggsmen have 
turned in to date, and the six goal 
total is the highest the Redmen, who 
are in the midst of a mediocre season, 
have scored this year. 

Clarence Simpson opened the scor- 
ing early, booting a long shot in be- 
fore the contest was a minute old- 
Saul Schanberg tied the score at the 
| thirteen minute mark of the same 
period pushing a dribbler past UMass 
goalie Tom Cornelius. After Ed Mon- 
aghan put the Redmen ahead with 
two minutes left of the initial period, 
they were never headed. 

Limey Hoelzel and Paul Puddington 
played their usual outstanding game 
for the Briggsmen despite the muddy 
condition of the field. 

The win was a team victory in the 
true sense of the word. Briggs used 
everyone on his squad before the final

Lead Derbymen In Quest 

Maine, VConn, UNH Offer Strongest 
Opposition In Meet At Durham 

by Jack Gordon 

Coach Lew Derby's undefeated Cross Country team will make 
a bid for their third straight Yankee Conference championship 
at Durham, New Hampshire, this Saturday. 

Co-captains Harry Aldrich, holder of the Yankee Conterence 
record, and Hank Knapp will lead the defendin g champions onto 
the course. 

Aldrich has also to his credit the 
•„urse marks at Yale and here at 
Massachusetts. Knapp, rounding into 
shape slowly this year, is now in top 
form and expected to give his team- 
mate a good battle for the coveted 


Adding an unusually fine balance 
to the squad are some speedy sopho- 
mores, Bob Horn, Will Lepkowski, 
and Pete Conway. "Squeaky" Horn 
pulled a pleasant surprise in the Har- 
vard meet by beating both his elders, 
Aldrich and Knapp. 

Fran Dyson will be the main hope 
of the Nutmeggers from Connecticut 
Now Hampshire's diminutive Alan 
Carlsen, Yankee Conference mile rec- 
ord holder, is the host team's best 
bet He and Aldrich have waged ter- 
nfic battles in both the YC and Conn. 
Valley championships. 

Derby believes that his boys have 
luality as well as quantity; that if 
they continue to run the way they 
have 3hown in their impressive dual 
meets, they will have a good chance 
to repeat this weekend. In comment- 
ing about their performance he says

Little Indian Soccer Team has not 
tasted victory yet in three outings 
having lost over the weekend to Mon-

U-Conn frosh 4-2 on Monday. 

John Brennen, the center half, 
sparkled on offense and defense in the 
UConn game as he scored both of the 
Little Indians' goals. The left half 
Bill McCary played an outstanding 
game for the frosh while Pete Flak, 
the fullback, also shone on defensive 
in the losing cause.

to break into the win column here on

On Oct. 31, a group will be sent to 
Wellesley for an all field hockey play 
day. There will be teams from all 
New England from which an all col- 
lege team will be chosen. 

The W.A.A. has sent invitations to 
the Univ. of New Hampshire, West- 
tield State Teachers college, Clark 
Univ., and the Univ. of Connecticut 
for a field-hockey play-day here on 
Nov. 7. There will be an informal get 
together after the games. 

Nov. 11, the W.A.A. is sending an 
upper-class field-hockey team and a 
freshman volley-ball team to Spring- 
field for a play-day. 

Participants for these play-days are 
chosen for their sportsmanship, abil- 
ity and interest in the W.A.A. 

In the near future there will be an 
exchange speed-ball day at Mt. Hol- 
yoke. It is open to all, for the promo- 
tion of speed-ball. 

I don't think the girls on the cam- 
pus realize all that is going on. Every 
Sunday and Tuesday afternoon there 
is archery recreational free-shooting. 
There is individual participation in

To start from scratch with only B

experienced personnel, while carrying

indeed no small task and Bob has 
done a very commendable job of

Brooks, Warren 
Launch Center

by Marjie Vaughan 
For the first time in their many 
years of co-authorship, professorship 
and scholarship, Cleanth Brooks and 
Robert Penn Warren spoke last 
Thursday on the same platform. 
Siamese Twins 
On the occasion of the dedication 
of the Poetry Room, the "Siamese 1 
Twins of Contemporary Criticism - " 
addressed an assembled 460 students, 
professors, critics and writers in 

In reading his paper comparing An- 
drew Marvel"s 17th century poem, 
"The Garden" with Warrens', "The 
Garden," Brooks emphasised the 
theme of Innocence in the two worka. 
He stated that where Marvel gives 
the impression of Nature u»corrupted 
by Man, ©f Adam before his Fall, 
Warren's figure is of a "ruined 
state" where 

"Peiaed between the two alarms 
Of summer's lusts and winter's 

The frost is a cleansing agent 

which translates, 
"All things, that feed luxurious 

From appetite to innocence.'* 
"Our own age, harried, chaotic, 
fissioned as it is, seems to render the 
garden experience unattainable, but 
for that very reason, we most need 
it," Brooks added. 

Warren's reading of three selec- 
tions from his long poem, "Brother 
to Dragons", found a hushed recep- 
tion and brought enthusiastic ap- 
plause. The description of the 8-foot 
snake toward the beginning of the 
poem took away the breath of the 
audience, as in the story it made 
breathless the visitor to the ruined 
log house on a bluff high above the 
Ohio. A later description of the 
same^ spot on a bitterly cold winter 
night almost brought the icy blast 
right through Bowker.

Butterfield Residents Lend Helpful Hand; 
Assume Custodian Duties in Time of Need 

by Jean Lambert 

The popular belief that college men 
are inconsiderate and irresponsible is 
a fallacy as far as Mr. and Mrs. 
Frank Demsey, custodians of Butter- 
field House, are concerned. 

Three weeks ago on Sunday Mrs. 
Demsey's mother died; and when the 
men of Butterfield learned of the 
Demsey's bereavement, they offered 
to relieve them of their duties so 
that the couple might attend to the 
funeral details. 

During the following two days the 
Butterfield men maintained their re- 
>pective sections of the house in or- 
rlrrly fashion. This fine gesture led 
to a letter from Mr. H. A. Randolph, 
Housing Supervisor, to Tuesday's 
Collegian praising the cooperation of 
ihe Butterfield men in doing an ex- 
cellent cleaning job. 

The Butterfield men also contri- 
buted to a fund to purchase flowers 
for Mrs. Demsey, and a Requiem 
High Mass for her mother. 

The Demseys had feared at the be- 
ginning of the college year that the 
change-over of Butterfield from a 
eirl's dormitory to a men's dormitory 
ould make their work heavier, men 
bemg men. However, they have found 
the men at Butterfield very coopera-

Campus Chest 
Drive Winner 

A new tradition is in the making 
in this year's Campus Chest Driv.-: 
| miniature chest will be given to 
the dorm with the highest contribu- 
tion per student. 

The Chest will be a symbol, passed 
from winning dorm, fruternity, or 
sorority from one year to the next. 
Collections, made in the spirit of 
friendly competition, will be recorded 
mi the graph outeiide the C-Store. 
UMJ Students Lag 
All -campus totals, heading hopeful- 
ly for the $3500 mark by Friday are 
aimed at $1 per student. Amherst 
College gave $2400 to World Univer- 
sity SortiCe alone, University of Ver- 
mont $1,882, and Smith $7,600. The 
U. of Mass. contributed $935 to WUS. 
Another group benefiting from 
U.M. dollars is the National Scholar- 
ship Service and Fund for Negro 
Students. 107< of all Americans are 
Mgvsjt but negro students comprise 
less than 1% of college students at 
non-segregated schools. Scholarship 
opportunities therefore are not as 
well-known or as extensive for negro 
students as for whites at the same 
schools. Last year over $14,000,000 
worth of freshmen scholarships were 
available to students on 800 cam- 
puses. Many scholarships, however are 
too small to meet the financial need. 
NCF Makes Education Possible 
The United Negro College Fund, an- 
other group served by Campus Chest, 
emphasizes economic aid to Negro 
Colleges. Enrollment in the Fund's 
colleges composes some 23,00^0 stu-

Mather and Leavitt 
Meet With Students 
To Discuss Program 

An alumni-sponsored Student Union 
building, to go into construction as 
soon as acceptable plans can be drawn 
up, will become a reality in the near 
future, it was announced today by 
Robert Leavitt, Executive Secretary of 
the Associate Alumni. 

Concentrate Efforts on Union 
In conjunction with University ad- 
ministrative policy, the alumni will 
cease their dormitory building plans 
until such time as enrollment is in- 
creased again, and concentrate their 
efforts on the construction of a Stu- 
dent Union building far In advance of 
the proposed expansion program. 

Mr. Leavitt, working with Provost 
Mather, "will call a general meeting 
of the student body on behalf of the 
Associate Alumni on Thursday, Nov. 
12 at 7:15 p.m." 

"This project requires the support 
of all members of the University fam- 
ily. Your attendance at the meeting 
will enable you to get the facts 
straight on a project that will affect 
everyone here," Mr. Leavitt added. 

The building will be located between 
the brook and Hasbrouk Laboratory, 
across from Draper Hall. 

The alumni will work closely with 
representatives of the Senate in deter- 
mining the facilities of the Union, and 
plan to have the building student- 
operated after it is completed.

A full day of outdoor fun for the 
students and faculty is to be had 
at Mount Toby on Armistice Day, 
November 11. 

Mountain Day, an all university 
function sponsored by the Mount To- 
by Recreation Project with the help 
cf Adelphia, Isogon, WAA, Scrolls, 
and Maroon Key, will enable the stu- 
dents to get an idea of the recrea- 
tion area that is now available to 
them as well as the progress that is 
being made in further development 
of the area. 

Faculty-Student Sports 
A full program is scheduled for the 
day with the recreation class plan- 
ning the sports program and the 
Athletic Department providing the 
equipment. The program will include 
hikes to the Mount Toby tower and 
other scenic spots, and faculty-stu- 
dent sports. 

Draper Lunch 
Draper Hall will serve a noon meal 
at Toby for students eating in the 
dining halls, since this meal has been 
paid for by the students. Students 
who don't eat in the dining halls, as 
well as the faculty, should bring box 

The Mount Toby forest, which is 
owned by the University and managed 
by the Forestry Department, is in 

Sunderland off route M. A map giv- 
ing directions will be shown in the 
Friday edition of the Collegian. 

Parking of cars will create a minor 
problem since route 63 is a main 
highway. All cars will be parked on 
the west side of the highway next to 
the forest. The small parking area 
within the forest will be reserved for 
the food truck and cars carrying 
equipment. This parking area is now 
too small for any large capacity of 
cars but it will soon be enlarged to 
handle up to . r »0 cars. A bulldozer 
will be used within the next two 
weeks to work on the beach, the 
parking area, and the construction 
of a softball field. All of these pro- 
jects have lieen approved. 

Transportation for Mountain Da> 
will be provided mainly by the stu- 
dents' own cars. Anyone who has any 
room is requested to stop by at the 
parking lot in front of the Physical 
Education Building to pick up passen- 
gers. This is the main meeting place 
for all those leaving between the 
hours of 10 and 11 Wednesday morn- 
ing. All of the faculty have been 
invited and they will also stop here 
to pick up passengers. Two busses 
have been hired to take care of the 
surplus but they will be unable to 
make more than two round trips each 
because of the cost.

Senator McCarthy, A Cau 8 e of Distrust 
When speaking about U. S. foreign policy, Dr. Caldwell said 
that the English realize that we have done some wise and con- 
structive thfngs, but they have a fear of what we may do- He 
ad that Senator McCarthy, tactics again* f»-l *» »«* 
liberties, United States' "get tough policy", a fear of military 
influence in Washington, and hasty political statements released 
from Washington have caused considerable intermittent distrust

To the Editor: 

1 would like to utilize this column to present a brief list of 
grievances to the young "gentlemen" residing in Berkshire House. 

My wife, while hanging out the wash, has recently been sub 
lected to a series of insults by the aforementioned young gen- 
tlemen". These insults have consisted of various obscene worov 
and suggestions. They displayed a form of rudeness which would 
have shocked them, had it been enacted by someone and direct 
>d towards their mothers. <* 

If these boys would bear it in mind that my wife is also a 

nother, and refrain from such behavior, friendlier relations will 

e enjoyed by all.

■ace over the 4.5 mile course to win. 
Maine also captured the runner-up 
spot with Paul Hanson finishing sec- 

Chuck Dyson, a fellow that UM 
will have to put up with in the Con-

Warren Lyon of New Hampshire,

Aldrich Displeased 
After the tiring race, Harry Al-

own showing. He, along with the rest 
.f the boys, thought that the victory

Egan Shines as Judges Thump 
Outclassed UM Eleven, 38-14 

by Al Shumway 
The pitching arm of quarterback Tommy Kgan, who com- 
pleted 9 out of 13 pass attempts for 208 yards including two for 
touchdowns, gave Brandeis a 38-14 decision over the Redmen 
football forces before 4000 fans at Alumni Field last Saturday. 

The Judges ran up a big 32-7 half-time lead mainly on Egan's 
passing. With the game a little over live minutes old, Egan con- 
nected with Bill McKenna on a pass 
play that covered 46 yards. Egan's 
pass for the extra point was Incom- 
plete, and left the Judges with a <"> <> 

However, they made up for that 
missed point the next time they got 
their hands on the ball. Egan passed 
to halfback Jack Kirkwood in the 
end zone for the Tl>. Goldfader's kick 
for the extra point was good and 
Brandeis had a quick 13-0 lead. 
Sensational Catch 
After a pair of exchanges, the Red- 
men broke into the scoring colum. 
Frank McDermott tossed a 30 yard 
pass from his own 25 to Joe Phelan 
who made one of the greatest jugg- 
ling catches it has been the privilege 
of this observer to see. Phelan after 
finally pulling in the pass, began to 
run like Crazylegs Hirsch through 
the Brandeis team before they finally 
hauled him down on the 15. 

On the next play, Frankie McDer- 
mott again passed — this time to Tony 
Chambers who made a diving twisting 
catch for the touchdown. Jerry Walls 
parted the uprights to make the score 
a respectable 13-7. 

Big Lead 
Brandeis salted the game away in 
the second period when they scored 
three times to give themselves a 32-7 
lead at the intermission. 

A pass from Egan to Kirkwood 
wa3 good for the first score. Dee 
Tyson went around right end for the 
second, and an interception by Roland 

Trudeau who went all the way for 
the score was the third. Sid Gold fader 
made one of the tries for the extra 
point good. 

The Judges after receiving the 
kickoff for the third period marched 
straight down the field for their final 
score. Kgan passed to McKenna for 
the score on a play that covered 56 

Buster Scores 
A blocked punt recovered by Lou 
Birsch near the end of the third 
period on the Brandeis 10 led to the 
nal Redman score. Buster DiVincenzo 
bucked over from the one for the 
score. Buster booted the extra point 
squarely between the uprights. This 
gives Buster "The Toe" DiVincenzo a 
perfect record for the year — eight 

The play in the final period was 
rather dull as both teams emptied 
their benches. 

On of the highlights of the game 
was the fine punting by Frankie Mc- 
Dermott who time and again kept 
the Redmen out of danger by getting 
away fine kicks. McDermott is the 
nearest thing to a triple threat back 
on the Redmen team. He does the 
punting, oftens runs out of the full- 
back slot, and steps into the quarter- 
back position now and then to chuck 
a few. 

This Saturday will find the Redmen 
opposing the New Hampshire Wild- 
cats at Durham.

One of music's most distinguished 
chorales, the Helsinki Chorus is com- 
posed of 60 "specially-picked" singers 
from Helsinki University and other 
higher educational institutions in Fin- 

The chorus has been under the di- 
rection of Martti Turen for the past 
two decades. Jan Sibelius, whose 
music is abundantly represented in 
their programs, is the patron. 

All of Finland's notable composers, 
headed by Jan Sibelius, have written 
works for "Ylioppilaskunnan Laula- 
iat" as the chorus is known in Fin- 

The return visit of the Helsinki 
fhorus is one of the major interna- 
tional music events of the present 

A testimonial to the musical art of 
the Finnish Chorus is its engagement 
by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. 

During its stay here the chorus has 
received many fine reviews, one re- 
view from the Worcester Evening 
(iazette reads as follows: 

"It must be stated without reser- 
vation that this chorus provided the 
finest singing by male voices that 
the writer has ever heard." 

Act To Stop 

Line-cutters in Draper will soon 
meet their nemesis. An intensive 
campaign will be launched on Mon- 
day, Nov. 9, by Isogon, in conjunc- 
tion with the three Freshman wom- 
en's dormitories. 

Posters, made by the freshman 
girls, have been designed to 
embarrass und intimidate the offen- 
ders and will be placed in prominent 
spots throughout Draper. The cam- 
paign will also »>e encouraged at 
house meetings of the dormitories 
whose occupants cat at Diaper. 

It is hoped that this campaign for 
good manners and consideration will 
be sufficient to discontinue line-cut- 
ting If the measures fail, a volun- 
teer police detail of students will be 
on duty at meal times to prevent 
further offenses. 

The first move towards showing 
movies on campus was taken by Sen- 
ator Gordon Mirkin at the Senate 
meeting Tuesday. 

Mirkin proposed that "Bowker Au- 
ditorium be used ... to show quality 
motion pictures; ... the funds thus 
derived (from admissions) to be 
used to subsidize . . . needy ... ac- 
tivities on campus."

Finance committee with a unanimous 

Among other actions the Senate 
appropriated $25 to pay half the 
cos: of hiring two busses for the 
lit. Tol>y Mountain Day next Wed- 
nesday. The remainder will be paid 
by the Mt. Toby committee. 

A possibility remains, however, that 

students using the busses might be 

charged a small fee, possibly ten 

cents. This move will l>e suggested

The group, however, will not be re 
sponsible for social regulations con- 
cerning fraternities and sororities, but 
will only be responsible for campus 
dances, receptions, teas and parties. 

This group also has joint repre- 
sentation of faculty memlKM-s appoint- 
ed by President Van Meter and stu 
dent members elected from the Sen 
ate. The faculty members include-: 
Dean Curtis, chairman, Culliertson. 
Mrs. L. Davey, Dean Bopkins, Lcavitt.

Bailey, and Robert Tuttle. 

The above map explains how to 
get to Mount Toby for Mountain Day 
next Wednesday. This map does not 
represent the correct proportions un- 
less the distances between the ar- 
rows are included. The total distance 
from the campus is 8 miles. 

A number of faculty members have 
been wondering whether to bring 
their families to Mountain Day. They 
are welcome to do so. The Recreation 
class has a program planned for any

be moderated. 

Again the students are reminded 
that the bulk of the transportation 
will be provided by the students 
themselves. Anyone who has a car 
is urged to stop by the Physical Ed 
parking lot to pick up passengers. 

Sign up sheets will be posted in 
all dorms and the library and C-

Senate Elections 

Recently certain facts have come to light concerning this 
fall's senatorial elections. Because these facts affect a large num- 
ber of students we feel that they should be brought out into the 

° Pen 'l In Brooks dorm, two senators were appointed by the fac- 
ulty resident. Regular elections were eventually held, but in the 
meantime the two appointed senators voted in the election of 
the oflicers of the senate. 
Bizarre Methods . , . , , 

Electoral methods in different residential units varied widely. 
Some procedures used could hardly be termed democratic. 

1 In Plymouth dorm an open box was placed in the reciea- 
uon room, and one student guarded it. A list of the candidate, 
names was placed on the ballot box, and voting lasted 4 hours, 

7 " U 2 P ' m in Chadbourne, a general house meeting was held, and 
the candidates for office gave extemporaneous speeches after 
which the winner was selected by a of hands of those 

present. , , ... 

3 In Baker dorm, one person sat behind a desk with two 
sheets of paper. On the first were the names of the candidates and 
on the second were the names of the students living in the dorm. 
A student approached the person with the sheets, gave the name 
of the candidate he was voting for, and also his own name. The 
person with the sheets would then check off the appropriate 
names. Though the official voting hours in the dorm could «ot he 
ascertained, according to several students the time ^ was fiom 
7:30 to 9:30— a time when many are not in the dorm. Seventy out 
of 365 students in Baker managed to vote. 

After receiving the above information we checked the Sen- 
ate Constitution as it exists. The most surprising fact we discov- 
ered is that there are no rules governing the conduct of senatorial 
elections, and only a very weak provision for establishing any 
All the above mentioned methods can not, therefore, be called 
illegal vet they are obviously unjust. The constitution does not 
guarantee, or even attempt to insure honesty or fairness in the 
elections of the members of the Senate-a student governing 
body which is responsible for drawing up many of the rules gov- 
erning the students and for allocating thousands of dollars in 
student funds. 

Section 19 of the constitution states that 'The Election Com- 
mittee shall consist of a chairman and a Senator from each resi- 
dential unit, (and) shall be responsible for the conduct of all stu- 
dent government elections held on the campus, for which purpose 
it shall issue rules subject to the approval of the Senate .in Fly- 
mouth dorm where one student watched an open election box this 
hypothetical committee had either delegated its authority poorly 
or was not taking its responsibility seriously. 

We have heard the excuse that there were not enough sen- 
ators left over from last year to conduct the elections properly. 
We don't consider this a valid excuse. When 11 senior senators 
graduated last year 29 were left. These senators should have been 
able to do this job competently. 

The Senate has authority. It wants to be considered as an 
important institution. It wants prestige and respect. It must ^cor- 
rect a situation like this immediately if it is to be worthy of the 
respect it desires.

Letter to the Editor 

To the Editor: 

I prefer a more direct approach 
to praise than that which Mr. Lane 
used in his satirical letter which ap- 
peared in Tuesday's Collegian. I am 
quite aware that the University of 
Massachusetts isn't a cloister but 
rather a university of the world. 

It is most important that we know 
and understand the events which are 
occurring all over the world. Our bat- 
tles arc being fought on "the other 
side of the world." The United States 
is a part of the United Nations and 
as such is as involved in Korean 
problems, etc. as are the Koreans 
themselves. I express the opinion of 
many students when I say that I feel 
that page three of the Friday edition 
is the greatest step towards growing 
up that that the Collegian has taken 
in a long time. We are preparing to 
enter the world outside. If there are 
those who honestly prefer not to, they 
will find it a difficult step to avoid. 

Yes, page three can be depressing. 
Every newspaper you pick up today 
ran be depressing. Let's not be scared 
of it though, Let's make sure we know 
all aWbut it. Perhaps ignorance is 
bliss. I don't think so and I know Mr. 
Lane and the rest of our student body 
agrees with me. This is America. All 
eyes are turned toward us today, 
asking for help. To help them, we 
must be informed. Page three is doing

You are walking on gold. 2,475 feet

A Savings Bank of Trees 
A nursery of 150 deciduous trees 
was begun in 1950 by the Arboricul- 
ture department to l>e used for plant- 
ing around the new buildings. Since 
ten trees for the nursery of one inch 
diameter can be l>ought for the price 
of one tree ready for planting (2 or 3 
inches diameter), it saves the Univer- 
sity considerable money to have this 
savings bank of trees. 

From Haycrops to Football 
In 1895, a big oak now behind Phi 
Sigma Kappa shaded a country lane 
parallel to our North Pleasant Street, 
and was surrounded by rolling pas- 
tures and hayfields that have now be- 
come our campus. 

Even in 1950, many of the areas 
that have now become lawn or ath 
letic fields were haphazard hayfields. 
The University farm took a crop from 
them every year. 

In 1950 areas on both sides of the 
college pond south of the crosswalk, 
and the field behind Kappa Sigma, 
were cleared. In 1951, the Grounds 
department tackled the area behind 
Hasbrouck, but that still has not been 
brought to the golfcourse green of the 
south area. 

Only this summer, the lawnmower 
attacked for the first time the fields 
between French and Fernald, and in 
front of Kappa Sigma. The change of 
many areas from a former haycrop to 
a new crop of athletes is only three 
years old. 

Our Future Planned By Thailand 
The only master plan of the Uni- 
versity of the future was done by one 
if our foreign students, Chaleo Kom- 
arakul, a grad student about 1960 
from Thailand, studying in the Land 
Architecture department. His plan. 
which was shown at the Horticulture 
Show last weekend, was part of his 
master's thesis on the development of 
UM. Although it is not official, it em- 
bodies many ideas of the Campus 
Planning Council which directs our

The campus will be directed around

ence. Ellis Drive, the road that swings

front of Fernald, French, and Clark). 
The Council is working toward an 
outer circular swing of successive 
roads — behind the women's dorms, the

there, in front of Brooks and Mills,

Shortly before the Senate meeting 
adjourned Tuesday Senator Paul 
Marks took to task his fellow legisla- 
tors for their failure "to participate 

in Senate affairs to the full extent 
of their abilities." 

Marks seemed to be referring to 
the Senate's habit of agreeing with 
committee reports without dissent. In 
the last three Senate meetings, for 
instance, on only one vote has there 
been a split vote— and that was Tues- 
day night when Marks voted alone 
against a bill. 

But every other time an issue has 
been brought to a vote the Senate 
has voted unanimously one way or 
another. While it is true that agree- 
ment is necessary to peace and pro- 
gress, it is still true that disagree- 
ment is the life-blood of democracy. 

Furthermore, most of the Senators, 
each of whom supposedly represerts 
a number of students, fail to say a 
word, either for or against any mo- 
tion. Concurrence is fine, but there is 
a difference between concurrence and 
unthinking agreement.

snowed under by a superior Spring- 
field team at Springfield last Wednes- 
day. The Gymnasts handed them a 
6-0 defeat to hold on to first place 
in the New England Soccer League. 
Leaving no doubt in the Redmen's 
minds as to who was the better team, 
Springfield dominated the play 
throughout the K ame. A poor offen- 
sive game on the part of Massachu- 
sdts was also a contributing factor. 
Springfield's first score came on a 
shot that caromed off Mel Allen's 
chest early in the first period. The 
Gymnasts scored twice again in the 
first period and three times in the

sidelined for next Saturday's game,

Yankee Conference Highlights 

For the second straight year the UConns of Connecticut threw the Yan- 
kee Conference race into a three-way scramble, as they turned back the 
front running University of New Hampshire Wildcats 6-0 at Storrs last 

veek on a heavy track. 

Unbeaten in the conference, but tied by Maine, the UConns took over 
first place, while New Hampshire was relegated to a second place tie with 
Rhode Island, each with two wins and a lone defeat. 

New Hampshire still has a chance of figuring in the final disposition 
of the Bean Pot provided the Wildcats can get by Massachusetts at Durham 
this week-end, something they haven't done since 1921. The Wildcats enter 
the game with a much more impressive record, but conference games have 
a habit 'of being highly unpredictable. 

The championship will probably hinge on the outcome of the Rhode 
Island-Connecticut game at Storrs on Nov. 14, with three teams again in 

contention. . , „ . 

Fullback Buddy Amendola of the UConns was the conference player 
of the week", as he led the Husky attack over soggy terrain and bulled 
across for the game's lone touchdown. 

Rhode Island rebounded last week with a convincing 18-6 win over pre- 
viously unbeaten Springfield. Maine romped over Colby 45-13 m a State 
series game at Waterville, Me. But Northeastern tripped Vermont 33-18, 
uid Massachusetts lost its fourth straight to Brandeis by a 38-14 margin 

While Massachusetts and New Hampshire engage in league play at 
Durham, N.H., Rhode Island takes a Saturday off to scout Connecticut at 
Brown. The Rams have already beaten the Bruins 19-13. 

Maine engages Bowdoin for the State championship at Orono, and Ver- 
mont has an equally important State series game on tap at Middlebury.

Frosh Trample Trinity, 20-7 
To Remain in Unbeaten Ranks 

Mel Massuco's strong frosh football eleven remained the sole 
survivor of the campus unbeaten ranks as it crushed a hitherto 
unscathed Trinity Yearling squad, 20-7, at Hartford last Monday. 
It was the fourth consecutive triumph for the Little Indians in a 
game that was postponed on Friday because of the condition of 
the playing field. With Vic Pascarelli in the role of hero, the Little 

Indians tallied three times in the hcc 
ond half to pound out the victory. 

Pascarelli .scored two touchdowns 
for the Frosh, one in tbe third period 
to put Massachusetts abead, and one 
in the final canto to WVSS it up for 
the Men of Mel Massucco. 

Kelleher Scores 

After George Kelleher had scored 
on a ten yard pass play for the home 
team, the Redmen caught the spark 
and began to roll. 

Right after the opening kickoff of 
the second half, a march was started 
by UM, and it was culminated by a 
11 yard TD run by Roger Mnrous. 
Then little Pascarelli took over.

Trinity fumbled and Massachusetts 
turned it into a quick tie-breaking six- 
pointer with Pascarelli doing most of 
the gaining. He scored from the sev-

Redmen Ramblings 

by Jack Gordon 

There's been one pleasant feature in this year's football season and that 
is the weather. The temperature, wind, and lack of precipitation have made 
it much easier to sit through the misfortunes that have been encountered 
in recent weeks, -also the drill team and band have been excellent after 
some beginning jitters.-The tainted statistics show 195 points scored against 
the Redmen while retaliating with 81 of their own in the six games played. 
—The main problem concerning the coaching staff this week as it has in 
most of the others is pass defense. Trying to find halfbacks who can cover 
the towering ends and also come up to stop the end run has added many 
grey hairs to O'Bourke's pate.— Injuries have equally disturbed the apple- 
cart as no one could predict what might have happened if Walt Naida had 
been able to go sixty minutes and the development of Steve O'Brien had not 
been interrupted by a shoulder separation.-We finally broke away from the 
41 Club jinx last weekend, but who were the hecklers who kept yelling for 
a field goal in the final minutes.-That catch by Joe Phelan in the second 
quarter was as phenomenal of the circus variety that this reporter has seen 
in many a moon.-Frank McDermott's versatility, especially in the punting 
department and the all round play of Tony Chambers stood out for the home 
forces -My own personal criticism, mainly to sooth the nerves of the old 
timers who witness these collegiate spectacles, is for the quarterbacks not 
to call for either screen or flat passes in the vicinity of their own goal line. 
The reasons are too obvious to mention.-New First, WMUA will broadcast 
direct from Durham the play-by-play of this week's encounter.-Television's 
gift to the curious, Omnibus, presented an informative tidbit on the intri- 
casies of college football last week when it hired Lou Little and 22 of his 
players to demonstrate some of the fundamentals. They introduced the sport 
as one which is a passion to some men and a mystery to their wives. How

Sunday afternoon. 

The concert, which was one of many 
on their Second Grand American and 
Canadian Tour, proved that the lang- 
uage of music is indeed universal. 

Although the words were foreign, 
the poignant meaning of "Pan", and 
The Marble Tomb", the rollicking 
melody of "Islanders' Jig" and "Chub- 
by Cheeked", and the stirring "March 
of the Farmers' Army" and "Song of 
the Slaves of Hiisi" made itself felt 
to the audience. 

Four excellent soloists, Harry Kan- 
jjaste, Solo Saarits, Veikko Tyrvain- 
,.n, and Rafael Sora also appeared 
on the tprogram. They had not only 
technical perfection, but the expres- 
sion with which they sang came from 
a true artistic appreciation of the 
words and music themselves. 

The group opened the concert with 
the "Star Spangled Banner" which 
they sang in English. As one of their 
two encores, they sang their. own Fin-

Finish In Top 27 
To Clineh Triumph 

Five fired-up Massachusetts CfOM 
country stars journeyed to Franklin 
Park, Boston, yesterday, and came 
home with all the bacon as the Red- 
men captured their lirst New England 
championship in history over favored 
Northeastern by the slimmeBt of mar- 
gins, 82-83. 

Co-captains Harry Aldrich and 
Hank Knapp, along with Pete Conway. 
Squeaky Horn, and Wil Lepkowski all 
finished in the top 27 in the Hi man 
field to wrap up the title. 

Shea Wins Rsce 

Northeastern star Ed Shea won the 
race and two of his teammates fin- 
ished among the first fifteen, but the 
fourth and fifth scorers were way back 
in the field. The Huskies could not 
compete with the spirit and depth of 
the UM corps. 

After the two top squads, MIT, 
Wesleyan, and Springfield trailed by 
wide margins. The Gymnasts, who 
beat UM in the Connecticut Valley 
championships last week, failed to live 
up to expectations and had to settle 
for fifth spot. 

Kelly Finishes Second 

As expected, the individual honor* 
went to Shea who beat Johnny Kelly 
of Boston University in their much- 
publicized duel. Chuck Dyson of Conn- 
ecticut came in third to add to hb 
growing laurels.

Never Let It Be Said 

Guest Editorial 

Let it never be said that the UM student passed up 
a chance to throw term papers and exams to the winds 
for a little fresh air, blue sky and S 00 ^ 01 ^* 11 ^^ 

Much has been said, written, sung about the gay 
college life. Just think though, when was the last time 
that the break from the books took place anywhere 
outside of a stuffy, smoky room? Here we are nestled 
in the Holyoke Hills", but the only acquaintance most 
of us have made lately with the great °^-£°™ » 
a grudging walk downtown because we missed the bus. 

Come on gang-whatever you think you might do 
that's so urgent Wednesday, it won't accomplish near- 
ly as much in morale and future achievement as a 
brisk hike, some ants in the hotdogs and a songfest 
around the fire at our own Mt. Toby. 

,«.. scholarship* totaling $250 have been awarded by the 
COLLEGIAN this semester. Editor-ih-Chief Bruce R. Vox, and 
Advertising Manager Ed Waxman were granted schol.rsh.p 

aid of $125 each. . . . , 

The University Committee on Scholarships and Student Aid, 
under the chairmanship of Provost Mather must au home 
these scholarships, and the Publishing Board of the 
must also give its approval upon the recommendation of the 
faculty advisers. The Board consists of seven students a Col- 
eg?™ a?umn U8 who is a working newspaperman the technical 
and business advisers, and a representative of the President of 

%£"S£L*m are given to Collegian Executives (who 
m U8t hold a minimum academic average of 80 to retain the r 
pTs ions) to allow them to give up part-time jobs and devo e 
hat time to further study. Scholarship aid is available only to 
executes who have to hold part-time jobs, and the amount is 
based not on the Collegian position held, but on the amount 
which is sacrificed for the semester by the withdrawal from 
work It is not payment for work on the newspaper. The schol- 
arships are financed by funds raised by the Collegian ,n adver- 

tising revenue. , .. 

The scholarship plan was adopted three years ago by the 
Publishing Board because the University Administrate did 
not want students who put in 10 or --hours per week on 
the Collegian to hold part time jobs, and did not wish to bar 
from Colfegian executive positions students who had to work 
to remain in school.

The Cadet Wing Headquarters has been set up on the second

their afternoons planning the Wing's activities. 

Under the direction of acting Cadet Colonel Paul Faberman.

publishes the necessary instructions and supervises the actua 
training during the Mass Drill period. In addition, the Cadet 
Wing is responsible for many additional functions which would

The training received in actual performance is invaluable to the 
cadets who will be called on as officers to perform many of 
the tasks now being turned over to them. 

In addition to having the cadets run their own organisations, 
several new positions have been formed. Among these new

tional news in the Collegian appeared in last Tuesday's editidh, 
and to others of like mind: . . 

We are "importing" worries from the rest of our world. 
They are not. already here? The event* which apply to the 
world situation, upon the clarification of which oar very sur- 
vival depends, are not of "interest" to us? They are 'depress- 
ing?" What a pity! ■■> r- . 

What are we going to college for? f*> stave off facing real- 
ity so we can blunder unprepared onto our little planet when 
we graduate? Are we not here to learn to understand theSe 
things, lest we tumble blindly from our ivory tower to a barred 
institution, there to "calm our stomachs?" ^ 

In the name of the common sense that these things ARE p>rt 
of our America, let's grow out of our snug little cradles BE

A Column of Finland 

(ED. NOTE: The visit of the Helsinki University Chorus Ibis 
served a. an introduction to a new column in the Collegian. We 
want to utilize the wealth of material that can be presented 
first hand by visiting students from foreign lands. In this and 
succeeding Tuesday issues, we want to introduce you to FIN 
LAND, a brave nation with integrity and great beauty; we wan! 
to tell you something of the land of the men who sang in the 
Cage last Sunday. 

General facts in this edition will serve as an introduction to 
following sequences concerning: Finland's Independence and 
Government; Is Finland Behind the Iron Curtain— The Political 
Situation; Sources of Livelihood-The Economic Situation of 
Today; Sociology of Finland— Customs, Traditions, Religion 
Life, Recreation, and Entertainment; Required Military Train 
ing and Military Background; Sports in Finland; and others. 
Mr. "Mac" Makela, a Finnish Exchange student, has consented 
to enlighten our campus community on these topics weekly.) 

Finland is (except for Iceland) the most northerly country to 
the world. About one-third of her total length lies north of the 
Artie Circle. The total area of the country is about 130,000 
square miles. There are about 30,000 islands off the Finnish 
coast. The 60,000 lakes comprise nine percent of the total area. 
There are 17 lakes covering more than 125 square miles, th« 
largest being (after the loss of Lake Ladoga to the USSR). 
Lake Saimaa, with an area of 2,750 square miles. About TO* 
of the land area are forests, "green gold" of Finland. 

According to the character of the landscapes and settled areas. 
Finland may be divided into "Cultural Finland" and "Natural 
Finland." Cultivated fields are concentrated in the southwestern 
and western parts of the country. The natural landscapes arc 
situated in the East and in the North. There are, however, con 
siderable population centers in "Natural Finland," too. The ma 
jority of Finland's 35 cities are situated along the seacoast, serv- 
ing foreign trade and maritime traffic. 

The population of four million consists of about three-and- 
one-half million Finnish speaking, 350,000 Swedish- speaking. 
2500 Lappish people (who are nomadic peoples of different sub 
cultures living in the northern part of Finland), and a .man 
amount of transient foreigners. 

Finland was under the rule of Swedish kings from the 12th 
century until 1808, and then until 1917 was an autonomous 
Grand Dutchy of Russian Czarism, when Finland had her o*n 
government but the Russian Governor General was the repre 
sentative of the Czar. In 1917 Finland became independent frtm

A Personal Plea 

Basketball Note 

Freshmen interested in trying 
out for the yearling basketball 
squad are requested to be present 
at an organizational meeting in 
the Physical Education building 
Thursday at five. Attendance is 
required for those who intend to 
compete for positions. 

by Jack Gordon 
When I left Tufts last year they had just finished a rather dismal season 
in which they ran out of gas after an auspicious start. The closing touch was 
administered by one Noel Reebenacker and his strong right arm in what was 
the end of a fairytale football fable of one destined to become an all-time 
great in Massachusetts history. I sat in the UMass stands knowing full well 
that I would have to make the transition of loyalty. That day Reel, put on a 
fantastic performance in my eyes, though I was told later that it was one of 
his poorer days. The game itself was the first to be nationally televised of the 
small college series. The Redmen didnt let the viewers down, but the Jumbos 
did as they hopelessly gave in. 

This year the tables have turned and Fred Ellis' team has after a slow 
start gained full steam and have had two weeks to prepare for Saturday's 
game. Ellis' building of the last few years has paid off as his patience with 
green players has produced seasoned veterans. The addition of Bill Sswin at 
halfback and the making of a smooth T-quarterback out of Fred Gerulskis, 
combined with the veterans of the front line has evolved into a sound, well- 
balanced outfit. Their victories over WPI, Middlebury, Williams, and their 
close, hard-fought 13-7 loss to powerhouse Amherst clearly points out their 
effectiveness this season. • 

The shoe is also on the other foot for Charlie O'Rourke th.s season 
and it's been pinching more each weekend. The Redmen thus far have given 
a disappointing showing after being touted to have at least a .500 record if 

not more. , 

There are now two chances left to redeem a little stature and repay the 
preseason prognosticators for some of the confidence that has been bestowed 
upon you. There is everything to gain and little to lose. There is also a large 
debt to pay for the fine loyalty that the student body has demonstrated in 
both the home and away games. My own feelings are quite evident and for 
the summary I have reverted to verse. 

Drastic changes have been seen in football this year, 
And we reporters and fans have had little to cheer, 
But I stuck by you faithfully as well as could be, 
So for want of anyone better please win this one for me. 

Freshmen Gridders 
To Challenge Brown 

Brown University, the only hurdle 
left in the path of Mel Massucco's 
Freshmen charges, brings its yearling 
el.-ven to Alumni Field tomorrow for 
the important Armistice Day game 
which is slated to start at 2 p.m. 

Spearheaded by four able backs, the 
squad is an offensive powerhouse, but 
the defense has proved solid as well. 
Quarterback Tom Whalen, injured re- 
cently, is a doubtful starter after sit- 
ting out the Trinity game. 

Halfbacks Competent 
At the halfback posts ""will be rug- 
ged Roger Barous, who has really 
proven affability to Coach Massucco, 
and littf* Vic Pascarelli, who came 
into his, own last week with a pair 
of touchdowns. 

Rounding out the backfield will be 
either Bob Norkaitis or Dick Wright 
at the fullback slot. These ball car- 
riers will probably give Brown head- 
aches, esi>ecially Barous, the scoring 

In the starting line, Coach Massuc- 
co is expected to go along with Joe 
Ingram and Bob Flaherty at ends; 
Jim Ruberti and Fran Spriggs as 
tackles; Bob Sampson and Bill Giar- 
usso at guards; and Ken MacRae at

Sch*«* f ' nann 




Last year a eurvey of leading colleges 
throughout the country showed that 
smokers in those colleges preferred 
Luckies to any other cigarette. 

This year another nation-wide survey 
— based on thousands of actual student 
interviews, and representative of si/ 
students in regular colleges- shows that 
Luckies lead again over all brands, regu- 
lar or king size... and by a wide margin! 
The No. 1 reason: Luckies taste better. 
Smoking enjoyment is all a matter of 
taste , and the fact of the matter is Luckies 
taste better — for 2 reasons. L.S./M.F.T. 
-Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. And 
Luckies are made better to taste better. 
So, Be Happy -Go Lucky!

Adelphia Points Reasons 
For Rally, Dance Fizzle 

Collegian & Curtis Blamed 

To the Editor: 

A low body blow was delivered last Friday night 
to the least deserving of all persons on this whole 
campus. This person was none other than Provost 
Jean Paul Mather. We feel this injustice was caused 
by the gross negligence of certain responsible people. 
You are perhaps wondering what constituted this in- 
sult The following is an explanation: 

In the nine months that Mr. Mather has been on 
this campus, he has worked feverishly to better the 
students' position from every point of view His is 
not a job which is contained between the hours of 
eight a.m. and five p.m., nor on the second floor of 
South College. Rather, it is one that he works, lives, 
eata, breathes, and no doubt, sleeps with at night. 

Two weeks ago, Adelphia asked Mr. Mather to be 
MC of the final football rally. In spite of the heavy 
schedule he carries, he consented without a bit of hesi- 
tation, although he had to be in Boston for a good 
part of the day on University business. Rushing back 
to the campus, he met just a handful of students for 
the rally; 5>."> students, in addition to those participa- 
ting to be exact. This figure* to be roughly 2.5', 
of the student body. Therefore, the rally and dance 
•riled. Whv did this happen, and whose fault

Finland's Independence 

And Government 

(Ed Note: This is the second m 4 series of articles intro- 
ducing our readers to Finland— her land and her problems. The 
series is written by Mr. "Mac" Makela, a Finnish Exchange stu- 
dent Other columns uill include: Is Finland Behind the Iron

Economic Situation of Today; Sociology of Finland -Customs.

Finland has always been forced to defend herself and to 
fight for her independence. The first peace treaty concluded be- 
tween (Sweden-) Finland and Russia took place in 1323. If 
the years of wars after this peace are counted, the number of 
the severe years would total almost a century. 

The situation of Finland changed essentially during ano 
after the First World War when the idea of independence of 
Finland became ripe and was then fulfilled. Until 1917 Finland 
was part of another nation, at first of Sweden and then of 
Russia; but on December 6, 1917, the Declaration of Indepen- 
dence offered a new position to this country.

Lack of Coordination 

Your answer. DO doubt, is "lack of publicity," but 
on whose part? Contrary to the opinion of some, ade- 
quate information needed to fully inform the stu- 
dents of the evening's events was furnished by Adel- 
phia when it submitted this news to the Collegian ten 
days ago. The news was to be printed in the Tuesday 
edition. The responsible people on the Collegian knew 
that there was no Friday paper that week, for a fol- 
low-up Story. Despite this fact, they proceeded to cut 
almost all the pertinent data from the article. Some 
members thought that the entire article

authority, without notifying those ultimately respon- 
sible for its being printed. This lack of coordination 
on the part of the Collegian Btafl has caused similar 
difficulties to arise in the past. 

Lack of Foresight 

The Collegian, however, is not the only responsible 
party lacking foresight— The Calendar Coordinating 
Committee, under the Chairmanship of Dean Helen 
Curtis, did not aid matters. The committee's lack of 
foresight was illustrated in one instance when a group 
of girls from Lewis dormitory stated, "We can't £0 
to the rally; we've got to decorate for the dance." 
Why was this allowed to happen?? 

For the benefit of those that do not know, it is 
through Miss Curtis that mixed social events are sanc- 
tioned and scheduled. Last May, Adelphia submitted 
requests for three rallies and one dance. This meant, 
that of the 33 Friday nights of the school year, we 
had asked for the grand total of three nights, in order 
to foster maximum support for our University foot- 
ball team. 

Committee Didn't Help

facts Whv then, coudn't she have asked the dorms

The (ieneral believes that the fallacy of a man

accepted. "In the case of the college student, the absurdity

that he is ambitious, will come back to college vastly

states "there is every reason to l.el.eve that the 
effect of Selective Service and the new Korea Bill 
will be to increase the male population of the col- 
leges rather than to decMftM it." Hershey estimates there 
are 1,200,000 male students in our colleges 
today. <>f these, many are World War 11 veterans ami 
than one-fourth are enrolled .n KOTC programs. He goes on 
to state that some 186,000 students are heing deferred because 
they meet certain class standards or received a certain score 
in the Educational Testing Service Kxaminations.

in numbers as great or greater."

Great Day at ML Toby 

To the Editor: . . . 

Last Wednesday, approximately 200 students enjoyed a day 
of fun at Mount Toby that they will long remember even though 
they have many more like it. 

I wish to take this opportunity to express my thanks to 
all those responsible for making Mt. Toby Day a success;. First 
and foremost on the list is Alpha Phi Omega ^™*r? m }* 
whose members contributed their time and effort Wednesday 
towards making everything run smoothly by helping move ma- 
terial and setting equipment up on time. Next I wish to thank 
Mr. Johnson and all members at Diaper Hall who helped out 
with the food situation. I wish to thank the Collegian for the

a rally and dance had already been planned for that 

evening. ,. .... 

Is it our job to ask every club, fraternity, sorontv, 
and dormitory to refrain from this "competition 
when the Dean of Women's office is capable of perform- 
ing this service more readily? Or is the spirit of stu- 
dent-Administration cooperation a one way proposi- 
tion*' We'd like to think not. Through other activities 
we have noticed this same situation. It clearly dis- 
plays either a negative or neglective attitude which 
impedes the spirit of mutual cooperation. 

Adelphia would like to apologize to the students that 
turned out for the rally and dance. We hope that the | repa ir. Our concern is 
above will serve both to explain why the rally and I the attitude that lies 1 
dance were called off, and further to point out this 
important campus problem which commands atten- 
tion. , . Ai ,

hard war was fought 

a Civil War, which made it much more difficult borne groups 
of Finnish people joined the Russian occupation army. "White 
Guards" of Finland fought against both Russian soldiers and 
their own citizens called "Reds'*. Commander-in-Chief of the 
"White troops" was Marshal Mannerheim, "White General , 
and be won after many severe battles. He was also the first 
Regent of Finland. 

In 1919 the present Constitution was adopted by Parliament 
and one after another, foreign countries recognized the new- 
independent state. In 1920 Finland entered the League of Na- 

Government Structure 
As to the governmental structure, Finlnad is a sovereign 
republic-. The Constitution consist! of a Form of Government 
and other fundamental laws. The governing power is vested in 
the people, who are represented by a unicameral Parliament ot 
200 member*. Parlkuneat is elected every throe years by direct 
popular vote on ■ basil of proportional representation. Suffrage 
is equal and universal. Citizens attain voting age at 21. Women 
have enjoyed the right to vote since 190(5. Finland was the 

first European country to extend Suffrage to women. Every vot- 
with certain exceptions, is entitled to run for office. 
The system of government is parliamentary. Legislative 
er is cxenised by Parliament jointly with the President, who 
s elected for a term of six years by popularly chosen Electoral 
College of MO members. The President has the power of a sus- 
pensive veto, which means that he can refuse to sign bills 
passed by Parliament In this way legislation can DC prevented 
from taking effect, unless Parliament passes it again unchanged 
after a new election. The President also has the power of issu- 
ing decrees in regard to matters previously arranged by ad- 
ministrative regulations as well as prescribing the execution 
of laws by ordinance. He is the Commander-in-Chief of the 
Defense Forces, but in the event of war he may delegate the 
post to someone else. He directs relations with foreign powers 
and decides issues of war and peace with the sanction of Parlia- 
ment. Treaties, however, must in certain cases be ratified by 
Parliament. The President appoints the highest office-holders, 
moreover, and the supreme executive prerogatives are like- 
wise his. 

For the general conduct of administrative affairs there is 
also a Cabinet (literally, Council of State), headed by a Prime 
Minister. The members of the Cabinet are named by the Presi- 
dent. The Cabinet also includes the Chancellor and Assistant 
Chancellor of Justice, both of whom are non-political perman- 
ent officials appointed by the President. The Chancellor of Jus- 
tice and the Solicitor General elected by Parliament for a term 
of three years superintend the observation of the laws as the 
supreme legal custodians. Judicial power is invested in indepent 
Courts of Justice. 

The practical duties of administration are assumed by the 
various government bureaus and the officials therein employed. 
Part of the administrative functions have been delegated by 
law to self-governing communities, of which the communes 
and the autonomous ecclesiastical associations are the most 

Compulsory Military Service 
The rights and duties of citizens, as well as their legal 
security, are prescribed in the "Form of Government." The 
most important of the civil rights are equality before the law, 
security of life, honor, personal liberty and property, protec- 
tion of labor, freedom of worship, speech, assembly and associ- 
ation. The duties of citizens include obedience to laws and de- 
crees as well as loyalty to State and compulsory military 

If you compare the governmental systems of the United 
States and Finland, you observe that they do not differ very 
much. These two countries, a big and a small, are both very 
democratic. The present political situation of Finland, however, 
is quite different, and you can ask, when speaking of Finland. 
"Is Finland Behind the Iron Curtain, what is the influence of 
communism," etc. 

To the Editor: 

On behalf of APO service fraternity, I would like to make a 
small request; a request for cooperation from the student body 
in regard to the use of the footbridge built by APO, over the 
brook by Alumni Field. Some time ago, one railing was broken 
off and later repaired. Now the same railing is broken beyond 

not with the actual destruction, but with 
. behind it. 
Although one of our primary purposes is to serve the stu- 
dent body, we don't like to be taken entirely for granted. Since 
we are relatively new on this campus, a little cooperation in 
the way of encouragement would be greatly appreciated. 

For APO,

Harriers 14th 
In IC4A Meet 

The Redmen Harriers closed one of 
their best seasons in years by placing 
14th in the 1C4A cross country meet 
in New York yesterday. 

22 colleges and universities entered 
the meet, with Michigan State, the de- 
fending champ, winning the crown by 
edging out Pittsburg by two points 

Bob Horn, one of Coach Derby's 
splendid sophomores was the first man 
to cross the line for the Redmen. He 
finished 48. Harry Aldrich came in 
59, Pete Conway 01, Hank Knapp 02 
and Will Lepkowski 99. 
Knapp Hurt 
The Redmen suffered one bad break 
when Knapp tripped about a mile- out 
and therefore lost about 40 places. 162

Although losing to a strong Vale 
team last Friday, the Redmen had an 
excellent 5-1 record in dual meets this 
year. They copped the Yankee Con- 
ference championship for the third 
straight year. They won the New Eng- 
land* for the first time in history and 
placed second In the Connecticut Val- 
ley meet. All in all, it was a most BC> 
i-essful year. 

Varsity "M" Club 

A meeting of the Varsity "M" Club 
will be held Tuesday evening the 21th 
of Nov. at 7:30 in room 9 of the Phys- 
ical Kducation building. The meeting 
will be highlighted by movies of the 
"Sports Thrills of 19.'»2". Refresh- 
ments will be served. All members are 
urged to attend. 

Sparked by their celebrated half- 
back, Roger Barous, the Little Indians 
roared back twice to defeat the Brown 
Freshmen, 18-14, at Alumni Field and 
finish their unbeaten slate with a 
mark of 5-0 for the 1953 season. 

Witnessed by a holiday crowd of 
1500, the game was thrilling from the 
opening whistle. Massachusetts drew 
first blood, scoring in the opening pe- 
riod on a one-yard plunge by Dick 
Wright. This TD was set up by a 
Dunn to Flaherty aerial which covered 
45 yards. 

Punt Blocked 

Brown took the lead in the second 
quartet 1 when Joe Cerasoll of the vis- 
itors blocked a I'M punt and recov- 
ered the loose ball in the end zone. 
The conversion gave the Bruins a 7-0 

Another Dunn to Flaherty pitch put 
the Redmen yearbngs in a position to 
sc-ore. The pass brought the ball to the 
two wherc> Dunn smashed over to put 
Massachusetts in the van. 

March Started 
Just as the Anal period got under 

way. a Brown march resulted in their 
second tally of the afternoon. The 
scoring play was a lb yard sweep by 

Bruce Carpenter. When Carpenter 

made the point food, Brown led 14-12. 
Immediately after the ensuing kick- 
off, the Little Indians started their 
game-Winning rally. The march start- 
ed on the I'M II and covered the 

length of the field in 13 plays Soger 

Parous, who did most <<( the carrying 
i ii the ground for the Maroon and 

White, led this attack and scored the 
clinching touchdown on :i live yard 

This important triumph, which let 
the Frosh realize their hopes for an 
Unbeaten season, was attained through 
a strong team effort. Linemen crashed 
through to stop Brown at every turn 
in the final period. Jim Ruberti, Ken 
MacRae. George Ingram, and Bob Fla- 
herty four boys you'll hear a lot 
about In the future played a bang-up 
game for the winners. 

Playing hard for this well earned 
win on the slippery turf of Alumni 
Field, last Saturday the Redmen 
Booters scored a 3-0 victory over a 
good Tufts team. Ed Monaghan 
started things off with a goal in twen- 
ty minutes of the first period on an 
assist by Bud Bauchiero. 

Simpson Scores Two 

Clarence Simpson scored the second 
UM goal in two minutes of the fourth 
period on a direct boot from almost 
mid-field. The kick was so hard that 
it went under the unfastened corner 
of the net as the Tufts goalie stood 
frozen. Simpson put in the other goal 
on a penalty kick in nineteen minutes 
of the fourth period. 

Hoelzel Sidelined 

"Limey" Hoelzel, benched with a 
broken knee cartilage was presented 
with the ball at the end of the game 
in tribute to his consistently great 

For two of the regulars, it was 
"their finest hour." Captain Paul Pud- 
dington and Goalie Bob Deans played 
their finest game of the season. Bob 
Deans had a well-organized team 
backing him up on every play. Tufts' 
Jose Lomax gave the- Briggsmen a 
little trouble with his rough brand 
of playing, but not enough trouble 
to prevent them from winning. 

The Redmen close their season to- 
morrow by playing Boston University 
in Boston. The team's standing in the 
New England Soccer League: depends 
on the outcome of this contest.

Student Union . . . 

Continued from page 1 
of this group. He further said, "Here 
is a perfect opportunity for those C- 
store experts who continually com- 
plain about campus conditions to do 
something constructive to better the 
University. If the Union is not ade- 
quate for the needs of the student 
body, the students will have only 
themselves to blame for every attempt 
is being made to include all of their 
ideas in the planning for the union." 

During the meeting Mr. Mather 
quoted the action taken recently by 
the board of trustees in wh/ch they 
decided to pay the expected two mil- 
lion dollar costs through a twenty dol- 
lar per year fee on all students. How- 
ever, no student will be assessed any 
of the costs until the doors to the un- 
ion are actually opened. 

Mr. Leavitt traced the development 
of the progress toward the union 
starting with the planning and build- 
ing of Memorial Hall back in 1919. He 
informed the meeting that there would 
be a good possibility of the funds now 
., He rted for an addition to Mem Hall 
being diverted into the building of the 
union. He also stated that the Alum-

Call for Knowledge, Ingenuity, Teamwork 

Making new products in large amounts, devising new proc- 
esses, and improving old ones-such problems are the job of 
Design and Development. An example was the development 
of a large-scale process for making "Orion" acrylic fiber 
starting from small laboratory samples of polyacrylonitrile. 
Quantity production of polymer was only a beginning. A 
whole set of new and unusual problems arose in spinning the 
fiber, because polyacrylonitrile decomposes before it melts, 
and it dissolves only in high-boiling solvents. 

A team of Du Pont technical men— chemical and mechan- 
ical engineers, instrumentation specialists, metallurgists, ^and 
materials handling experts undertook to find a solution. 
Here are a few of the problems they met: 

1. Solve problems in heat transfer and fluid flow 
arising from the fact that the spinning solution 
must be blanketed with inert gas to prevent fire 

2. Design a system for controlling the tempera- 
ture of the viscous spinning solution within ±0.5°F. 
at hundreds of points in the plant. 

3. Design new mechanisms for winding yarn at 
high speed without any deviation in yarn tension. 

4. Design air conditioning and ventilating sys- 
tems to remove fumes from specific spots, but 
still allow easy accese to all areas. 

Among Du Pont's many research and engineering activi- 
ties, Design and Development jobs provide great oppor- 
tunity for the knowledge, ingenuity, and teamwork capaci- 
ties of men in a great variety of technical fields.

ination not to schedule classes on 
Sat., Oct. 2, li>54 to permit the stu- 
dent body to attend the UM-Harvard 
University football game at Cam- 

Senator George Cole submitted the 
resolution to the Senate, which un- 
animously approved the suggestion. 

The action was taken at this early 
date to comply with the Calendar 
Committee's ruling that requests for 
calendar changes must be submitted 
a year before the date of change. 

Earlier in the meeting a $567 ap- 
piopriation for the University Chor- 
ale passed the Senate, despite the 
resistance of Vice-President Rita 
Katz. The vote was close, 17-14,— the 
first time in several meetings that 
more than two votes were cast in 
the minority. The money will be used 
to buy 21 blazers at $27 each for 
the boys in the Chorale.

Prof's Book Used 
At Fifty Colleges 

Dr. R. E. Trippensee, professor 
of wildlife management at the U. of 
M., has just published a new book on 
wildlife management. 

The book, subtitled "Fur Bearers, 
Waterfowl and Fish", is a part of 
the American Forestry Series pub- 
lished by Mc-Graw Hill. It is Dr. 
Trippensee's second volume on wild- 
life management. His first book has 
been adopted by more than 50 col- 
leges and universities as well as va- 
rious schools throughout the United 
States and Canada. 

Prof. Trippensee holds a Bachelor's 
degree from Michigan State College 
and a Master's and Ph.D. from the 
the University of Michigan. 

Isogon Appoints 
Group to Further 
Interest in World 

To strengthen the tradition of 
world consciousness on campus, Iso- 
gon has established a committee on 
International Emphasis. 

At a meeting in Old Chapel last 
Thursday plans were formulated for 
an International Day on Apr. 3, as 
well as for a program of awareness 
throughout all campus activities of 
the relation of UM to the world com- 

Isogon's yearly representation will 
insure the committee's continuity, 
and enlist interested students an- 

The New-man Club, Hillel, Student 
Christian Association, and the Inter- 
national Relations Club have agreed 
to give their support. A core group 
of "friends of the World University 
Service" will be the coordinators of 
the committee. 

Present in the initial organizational 
meeting were: Mr. Luther Allen, ad- 
visor to the International Relations 
Club; Dr. Maxwell Goldberg of the 
English Department, and an officer 
in the World University Service pro- 
gram; Mr. Robert Lane, advisor of 
the Campus Chest Committee; and 
Mr. Sidney Wexler, advisor to for- 
eign students. 

The Committee is sending out a 
call to any interested and world-con- 
scious students to meet with them 
the Thursday after Thanksgiving, 
Dec. 3 at 11 a.m. 

Emphasis Placed 
On 'Sweet Music 9 

Charlie Spivak and his orchestra 
will play for the Military Ball Dec. 
11 in the Amherst College gym. 
Billed as "The man who plays the 
sweetest trumpet ii> the world", Spi- 
vak places most emphasis on soft, 
danceable melodies. 

Getting his start in New Haven, 
Conn., he has played with the Dor- 
sey Brothers Orchestra, Ray Noble 
and the late Glenn Miller. 

He waB a free lance musician be- 
fore organizing his own band. Since 
then he has made hits at the Glen 
Island Casino, the Cafe Rouge of 
the Hotel Statler and the Commo- 
dore Hotel. 

He has appeared in such motion 
pictures as "Pin-Up Girl" (20th 
Century Fox) and "Follow the Girls" 
(Universal), and has produced an 
album of Kreisler compositions for 
RCA Victor which was the first time 
that Fritz Kreisler had approved 
having his compositions played in 
dance tempo. 

A highlight of his career was his 
award by Downbeat Magazine as 
having the top "sweet band" in the 

One of the managers at the Statler 
Hotel in New York summed up his 
style when he said: "Spivak blows 
clear enough for all to hear but peo- 
ple can still carry on a conversation." 
Charlie Spivak features Audrey 
Morris, Jack Bailey and Paul O'Con- 
nor with his orchestra. 

Spivak has said of his reputed 
success: "Success is something you 
work for — and when it comes, you 
work harder. Because, once you get 
to the top, you're a public servant, 
and you owe your public the best

Phi Beta Kappa will send a com- 
mittee to investigate the campus in 
Mar. 1954. Our possible acceptance 
will be voted on at the tri-ennial 
convention in 1955. 

The Phi Beta Kappa Association

SCA Sponsors Dance 

The Freshmen Cabinet of the SCA 
will sponsor a Turnabout Dance on 
Saturday, Nov. 21 at 8:30 p.m. in 
Drill Hall. 

The Greenough band will furnish 
music and refreshments will be avail- 
able. Admission will be 40c per cou- 
ple and 25c for stags 

This dance will be a "Sadie Haw- 
kins" type affair. The girls will do 
the asking, but if the men find 
themselves without a date, they may 
ask someone. 




Three hundred girls in two beautiful new dorms-another 
dormitory in the making— definite plans in progress for a Hub 
of the campus. We welcome these necessary additions to our cam- 
pus, but we ask, "how did they get here?" 

Perhaps you know that the Alumni have been a strong sup- 
porting force in making these buildings available to us so soon. 
One of their main objectives has been to concern themselves in 
working for projects beneficial to the University. 


The Alumni sponsored a fund raising campaign to build Me- 
morial Hall in memory of those who gave their lives in World 

War I. 


The Alumni saw the lack of dormitory space, and knowing 
that thev could build in a year's time what would take many 
years to' build through the legislature, they formed the Alumni 
Building Corporation which would operate through a self-liquida- 
tion plan. As a result of this foresight, we now have more ade- 
quate housing for students and for faculty. The Alumni have also 
been instrumental in securing funds for the physical education 
building and Alumni Field, and in raising funds for scholarships. 


The Alumni were about to add a cafeteria, ballroom, and 
lounges to Mem Hall when, suddenly, Massachusetts State College 
changed her name to University and began to look forward to the 
time when she could boast of 10,000 students. This caused the 
\lumni to hold their funds for revised plans. Until then, Memorial 
Hall served its purpose, very adequately, as a student union build- 
ing for 600 students. 


The present project of the Alumni is to finance the Student 
Union Building, but they aren't stopping there. Beginning last 
winter a general reorganization has been taking place in the 
Alumni Office. Mr. Robert Leavitt, Executive Secretary, has been 
busy organizing and reactivating Alumni Clubs throughout the 
country, but mainly in Massachusetts. These clubs have Worth- 
while projects for UM" as one of their main objectives 

The Alumni are interested in seeing UM grow, and by help- 
ing to improve the physical health of UM, they are helping to 
provide some needs for social and intellectual growth.

The election ousted from office Flpidio Quinno, who has been president

also won large majorities in both houses of the legislature. Magsaysay cam-

Dickinson Dresses the Ladies (or is it laddies?) 

As stage manager, properties man, costume director, and genera man- 
ager, it was his job to lace the stay, into which the second leading ady was 
squeezed, for this part was played by Mass. Aggie's star football guard. 
There was only one coed among the original Roister-Doisters. and I rot. 
Dickinson's memory of her is: "She and all her skirts and costumes were the 
bane of my existence!" 

Except for the years during World War I when the entire campus was 
forced to close down, the Roister-Doisters have presented two major plays 
each year, worked in additional productions now and then, and sponsored 
the annual inter-class play contest. World War II caused a serious shortage 
of men, but they carried on by choosing plays with large female casts io» by- 
casting women in men's parts as they did for "Love's Labours Lost. 

Always anxious to please its audience, the Roister-Doisters responded 
to the demand for Shakespeare that was felt about once in every student 
generation. Their general aim was and is to present high calibre dramatic- 
productions, alternating light and heavy drama when possible 

A number of original plays were given, at least four of them written 
by Mr Rand who served as adviser to the group from 1920-1947. One of 
his most successful ones was "a wild who-dun-it," as he terms it, which 
starred Dr. Goldberg in the lead. 

Hit the Road . 

Averaging two or three off-campus productions a year, the Roistei 
Doisters have toured New England, and one year they played New York 
and New Jersey as well. Their 1930 presentation of "The Americans Come - 
an unusual play which used no scenery at all-was particularly well re- 
reived by the public: it was given 13 times. 

Former Roister-Doister audiences probably remember "The Night of 
January 16th" better than any other play, for they took part in it. The 
play involved a court trial and required a jury whose members were re- 
cruited from the audience. These people performed as regular actors, with 
drawing for a decision and returning with their verdict. In addition, the 
rest of the audience voted by ballot at the end to corroborate the jury l 

findings. . . .... . 

The Roister-Doisters turned this into a dramatic experiment by playing 
for an acquittal one night and a conviction the next. By casting different 
people in the roles of lawyer and defendant on different nights, they sue 
ceeded in getting the jury to return the desired verdict. 

Professor Arthur Neidick has been advisor to the Roister-Doisters since 
1947, and under him the organization has grown to include approximately 
175 members this year. 

There has been a growth in stature, too. No mere extra-curricular ac 
tivity, the Roister-Doisters Society is striving to bring all kinds of theatre 
to the University of Massachusetts and is thus making a real contribution 
to a well-rounded liberal arts education by affording genuine dramatic ex

A charge of railing to face facts 
leveled at the Truman Administration 
by Attorney General Brownell opened 
the curtain on a political drama cen- 
tering about a dead man and starring 
a former president. 

The dead man was Harry Dexter 
White, who attended the 1911 fall 
session of Mass. Aggie and later be- 
came the Assistant Secretary of the 
Treasury and the United States rep- 
resentative to the International Mon- 
etary Fund. 
Promoted In Spite Of FBI Reports 

The drama involved charges that 
White was promoted to the Monetary 
Fund Job in 1!>45 in spite of FBI re 
ports indicating that he was engaged 
in trafficking with the Communists in 
confidential government information.

U.S. Joins In U.N. Protest On Israel 

This week at the United Nations the United States delegation decided 
to join France and Britain in introducing in the Security Council a resolu 
boa to condemn Israel for the recent raid on a Jordanian village. 

The U.S decided a month ago that the attack, in which SI persons were 
killed, should be placed before the UN, but only this week decided to join 
in sponsoring the resolution to censure the Israeli. 

The proposed resolution also includes proposals to strengthen truce 
supervision machinery on the uneasy frontier.

POW's to be Freed 
In Jan., Dulles Says 

All Korean POW's must be freed 
by Jan. 22, Secretary of State John 
Foster Dulles announced this week. 
According to his statement, the 
armistice agreement terms provide 
that all prisoners who have not been 
repatriated or otherwise dealt with 
by a political conference shall be 
come free 120 days after being 
turned over to the Neutral Nations 
Reparation Commission. 

Nehru has said that the freeing 
of prisoners issue should be turned 
over to the UN and Communist com- 
mands if no conference has been held 
by Jan. 22. 

The Dulles interpretation gains 
importance with the dim prospects 
for a Korean Peace Conference. 

The Communists now propose a 
three-sided peace conference. How- 
ever, this still involves the acceptance 
of five neutral powers, a demand 
c< r.tinually rejected by the UN. 
As yet, not even the site of the 
eee conference has been decided

White resigned from the government, 
receiving ■ very complimentary letter 
from President Truman. Later White 
was asked by a grand jury if he was 
■ communist. He refused to answer. 
He di«'d three days later at his farm 
in FitzWilliam, N. H. Later, docu- 
ments in his handwriting turned up 
sinong the famous pumpkin papers of 
Whittaker Chambers. 

Brownell Charges Laxity 
Attorney (leneral Brownell, speak- 
ing in Chicago on the subject of Com- 
munists in Government, reopened the 
ease when he charged that "unwilling- 
ness of non-Communists in responsible 
(governmental) positions and persist- 
ant delusion that Communism in the 
Government was only a 'red herring' " 
was responsible for "grave difficulties" 
in handling the present security prob- 
lem. To illustrate, he used the White 
rase, stating "White was known to 
be a Communist spy by the very peo- 
ple who appointed him to the most 
sensitive and important position he 
ever held in government service." 

Brownell added that FBI reports 
had been forwarded to the president 
both before and after White's con- 
formation by the Senate, and yet the 
Senate was allowed to confirm the ap- 
pointment and Truman signed his

Byrnes replied that he should not 
be forced to leave his duties as a state 
governor, but offered to answer ques- 
tions from South Carolina. He was al- 
lowed to do so, but failed to add any

Truman Replies 
The next development was a tele- 
vision speech by Truman in which he 
accused Brownell of lying and de- 
grading the office of Attorney General 
and of debasing the office of President. 
H.' added that he approved the pro- 
motion in order to further the inves- 
tigations. However, he did not say 
that the White appointment was ap-

"I'm interested in everything that

Robinson expresses his philosophy of 
life which he still applies here at the

Mr. Robinson's position on campus 
is unique for he is neither a student 
nor an employee. He has combined 
those two ways of life perfectly, how- 
ever, for he is constantly trying to 
learn from people, and is always 
ready to help them in any way. He 
is interested in everything from en-

Last week the Massachusetts cross country team wrapped up a very sue 
cessful season by finishing fourteenth in the annual IC4A meet at Van Cort- 
landt Park, New York. No doubt you've heard this news by now and the ques- 
tion has come to your mind— What does IC4A stand for? 

* » » * * 

To begin with, the letters IC4A stand for the Intercollegiate Association 
of Amateur Athletes of America. The term IC4A stands for 64 colleges east 
of the Mississippi all of whom come together in some sport durmg the school 
year for a championship meet. Such a meet was the cross country race held 
last Monday. Under the direction of President Percy L. Sadler of Lehigh Urn 
versity, the organization's purpose is to bind willing Eastern schools together 
,n an Athletic group smaller than the National Collegiate Athletic Assoc.a- 


* * ♦ * • 

As for the cross country end of it, the 1953 race, won by Michigan State 
for the eighth time, was the 45th renewal of the event. To capture permanent 
possession of the trophy, a team must win five championships. Cornel is the 
only team besides the Spartans to have won a trophy for keeps The longest 
winning streak in the meet's history is five in a row racked up by 
State from 1933-1937. Another power which has come up in the past decade 
is Penn State, winners three times and co-favorites this year. Many teams 
have shown spurts of strength in this event from time to time^ Rhode Island 
shot their bolt /n 1940-42 when they won three straight. Manhattan College 
also has three legs on the current up-for-grabs cup.

sets Agricultural College as a Fed- 
eral student or "G.I." of World War 
I. He took a two year course which 
included fruit growing, entomology, 
and animal husbandry. "Things

are now," he claims, "and we had 
to know a little about everything."

It was after the completion of this

chose the place where he was born,

Petersham, which is twenty-three 
miles east of the campus. 

Despite discouragement of most of 
the people from "these parts," be- 
cause of a harmful disease to turkeys

Simpson Scores 
Four Tallies 
In UM Decision 

Clarence Simpson came through 

th the hat trick plus one as he 

ad four goals to lead the Redmen 

soccer team to a 5-0 upset win over 

Boston University Terriers on 

. edneeday. 

The win places the Briggsmcn

. ire second place in individual scor- 

Xhe Redmen drew first blood

Kauchiero booted in a goal. 
* mpaon Takes Over bf 

After that, Simpson took care of 
e scoring department by scoring 
pair of goals in the second and 
other brace in the final period. 
For the most part, there were no 
rctacular plays, but the combined 
i playing of the entire team was 
margin of the victory. Al 
Limey" Hoelzel was forced to watch 
. >?ame from the bench as he is 
still nursing a knee injury. 

Hob Deans turned in his usual 
iperb job as goalie and gained his 

eld consecutive shutout. 
Captain Paul Puddington played 
usual steady game at the half- 

k POSt. 

The victory, which is the final 
iiu of the season, gives the Red- 
a 8-S-l record. This gives Coach 
Larry Briggs his first winning sea- 
- n in quite a number of years. The 
ggsmen started the season by be-

Gridders to Face UNH Tomorrow 

The Redmen football team is the 
only remaining obstacle in the path 
of the University of New Hamp- 
shire's bid for a tie with Rhode 1s- 
lard for the Yankee Conference title. 
The Rams took sole possesion of the 
top spot last week with their excit- 
ing victory over the Huskies of Con- 

The Redmen have a couple of debts 
of their own, the main one being 
their current six game losing streak. 
In an attempt to put a halt to this 
infamous record, Barry Gildea has 
been nominated to call the signals 
this weekend as Charlie O'Rourke's 
final bid to find a suitable field gen- 
t ral. Gildea, injured early in the 

season switched into the line to bol 
ster the ailing front wall. The 
chunky junior moves back into his 
OWB right Saturday teaming up with 
Jerry Walls Don Johnson and Billy 

hooked Good 

The aforementioned trio really 
looked like the combination that 
O'Rourke has been searching for all 
season last Saturday against Tufts, 
Kach man is capable of hitting the 
middle, skirting the end, or pulling 
down a pass. It will be interesting 
to see what Gildea will be able to 
do with these speedsters. 

The Wildcats, on the other hand, 
own a fine five and two record with 

one defeat to a strong Delaware 
Club and the other, a 6-0 thriller to 
Connecticut. Quarterback Billy Pap- 
pas and fullback Charlie Sowerby 
are the standouts on the star studded 
suuad. Pappas has been touted as 
one of the finest signal-callers in 
the New England area. Sowerby is 
a transfer student from Holy Cross 
and stands a good chance for All- 
YC honors. 

Final Game 

Appearing in their last game for 
the Redmen will be Walt Naida, 
Tony Chambers, Larry Berlin, Paul 
Divincenzo, Frank Jacque, Joe Phe- 
lan Charlie Redmen Bill Rex and 
John Wofford. 

Qutes Top AEPi 
25-12 in Frat 

Q.T.V. climaxed a great football 
season Wednesday night, blasting 
AEPi 25-1*2 to take the I!'.™ Inter- 
fratemity Football title in an excit- 
ing play-off game that will long be 
remembered. Both teams ended the 
season with identical 12-1 records, 
necessitating the play off. 

To get down to hard facts, Steve 
Hopkins was the individual scoring 
star for the victors catching two 
touchdown passes. 

Harrington Runs Buck Punt 

Scoring started early in th«; game. 
Neal Harrington took a Billy Kar- 
lyn punt in his own end zone after 
the Qutes had held AEPi on downs 
after the opening kick-off. Harring- 
ton twisted his way behind beautiful 
down field blocking to scon? after 
barely two minutes had bean played. 
A short pass to Howh Dennis in 
the end zone was good for the only 
extra point either team aa or od all 


Passes from quarterback Ray l.e 
Tourneau to ends Steve Hopkins and 
John Masaschi were good for two 
more touchdowns for Q.T.V. and a 
short pass from quarter back Bill

made the half time score l'J-»;.

inson decided to try his luck at rais- 
ing them in Florida where the "richer 
folk" might like them. He was not 
as successful there, however, because 
the boom in Florida was over at that 
time, so he decided to go back to 
learning. He attended North Carolina 
State College and Duke University, 
where he studied nutrition. 

Mr. Robinson believes in practic- 
ing what he learns and applying it 
to life. In the field of nutrition, in 
which he is very much interested, he 
says, "too many carbohydrates are 
bad for your system — you should get 
enough proteins and vitamins." 
Let Beard Grow 
After his studies, Mr. Robinson 
went to Pennsylvania, and that is 
where he first came in contact with 
the Mennonites, or "Plain People." 
"It is from these people," Mr. Robin- 
son says, "that I learned a great 
many things which correspond with 
my ideas." "One outstanding charac- 
teristic feature of the Mennonites is 
that they let their beards grow. This 
influenced "Leo" to let his grow. All 
his forefathers had long beards, too. 
These "plain Peple" believed in a 
theory of non-violence, and in coop- 
erating with people. "That is my aim, 
too," he explained, "to help you folks 
here at the University." When he was 
asked what his advice to the students 
was, Mr. Robinson replied, "If you 
believe in something don't give it up, 
but work for it, and above all, take 
pride in your institution."

Here and There in Sports 

Charlie O'Rourke's Redmen will be up against one of the best backs in 
\ u England football this Saturday when Charlie Sowerby takes the held 
r the New Hampshire Wildcats in the season windup for the two teams. 

Sowerby started his sports career at Keene (N.H.) high school where he 

- an all-state selection in baseball, basketball, and football. At Holy Cross, 

.here he went for one year, he was a starting back while a freshman and 

>;:,ce transferring to New Hampshire, his spectacular running has kept the 

ruddy countenance of U.N.H. coach Chief Boston wreathed in smiles 

Incidentally, Sowerby's backfield coach at Holy Cross was none other than

For the third time in three weeks 
the Yankee Conference lead changed 
hands, Saturday, as Rhode Island's 
Rams upset the front running Conn- 
ecticut Huskies 19-13 before a rec- 
ord crowd of 12,500 at Storrs, but 
possession of the coveted Bean Pot 
will not be decided until Massachus- 
etts and New Hampshire tangle at 
Durham this week-end. 

Connecticut's lead was blasted in 
the final 49 seconds of the game 
when Big Pat Abbruzzi, one of the 
top running backs in the nation, as- 
sumed a new role and flipped a 
touchdown pass. Thus UConn, once 
beaten and once tied, is out of the 
running, while Rhode Island, with 
three wins and a single defeat leads 

the pack. 

UNH Needs Victory 

New Hampshire, with two wins 
and one defeat, needs a victory over 
Massachusetts in the finale to tie 
Rhode Island for top honors. 

So, for the second straight year, 
the conference race roars down to 
the last game with the championship 
hanging in the balance. A year ago 
Maine, Connecticut and Rhode Is- 
and finished in a triple tie. This year 
it will either be Rhode Island all 
alone in front of the field, or a tie 
between the Rams and Chief Bos- 
ton's Blue Wildcats from New 

New Hampshire, fresh from a 7-6 
win at Springfield, goes into the 
game with a 5-2 record, and will be 
a solid favorite, off comparative 
scores. But Conference games have 
a habit of being unpredictable, and 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke's sopho- 
mores showed marked improvement 
last week in holding Tufts to a 
14-0 margin at Amherst. 
Won Last Year 

Massachusetts won last year 25-13 
and holds a 7-4 edge in the scries. 

The game was originally scheduled 
to be played at Durham on Nov. 7, 
but was postponed when a North- 
east gale swept the field and de- 
posited four inches of slush. 

The standing of the conference 
teams follows:

Critic Rates RD Performance, 
Shirley Hastings, Outstanding 

by Dave Seymour 

An outstanding performance by 

Shirley Hastings as Elizabeth I in 

Klizabeth the Queen" pointed up 

the Roister Doister production of 

Maxwell Anderson's play. 

Shirley reached the height in skill, 
.motion and intensity in the second 
secne of Act II when she hysterically 
lamented the Earl of Essex's (played 
hy Mario Bruni) betrayal of her. 

She showed in her performance 
maturity and an understanding of 
the role that she was called upon to 
perform. It seems almost inconcei- 
vable that a college student could 

and point out the impossibilities of 
the Knglish ever conquering the har- 
dy "Sons of the Kmerald Isle." 

Essex fails to SVbdlM the Irish 
partly due to the resistance he BSSStS 
there and the plots of Sir Robert 
Cecil and Sir Walter Raleigh. 

In disgrace he is ordered home. 
However, thinking that the Queen slightest intention of

Says Loewenstein 

"As long as Adenauer is Chan- 
cellor, there will be no unification of 
East and West Germany," according 
SO Karl Kowenstein. 

Lowenstein, Professor of Jurispru- 
dence at Amherst College and visitor 
|0 Germany during the campaign pe- 
riod prior to the recent elections, 
made the above statement in a lec- 
ture on "The German Elections", last 

Amherst-Wide Broadcast 
Sponsored by the International Be 
lations Club, the talk was given in 
Skinner auditorium and broadcast 
throughout the Amherst area through 
the facilities of WMUA. 

Dr. Lowenstein explained his pessi- 
mistic attitude toward unification by 
painting a picture of German politics. 
Adenauer's Catholic Christian Demo- 
cratic party dominates in West Ger- 
many, but if Berlin and the Eastern 
provinces participate in all-German 
elections, the Social Democrats ,the 
only major opposition party, would 
have ■ majority, Lowenstein predic-

"Papa" said Elmo, who was the 
larger and sharper of the boys, 
"snow is falling in your horn, your

cool," said papa and he put his horn 
under his wing, for he knew that 
a wet horn was definitely nowhere. 

"Papa" said Nemo, who was the 
smaller and definitely square, "will 
there be a feed at the session to- 
night?" "There will be sounds," said 
the Papa sternly, for he was angry 
that little Nemo was not at all cool. 
And poor little Nemo was very 
quiet because he knew his papa 
did not like for him to think of 
goodies when the family made their 
onenigbter at the local barn, even 
tho' it was Thanksgiving. So he 
wrapped his cold, red neck under his

will be warded for an A, three for 
a B, two for a C, one for a D, and 
zero for an F.

The Paternal Hand 

Offers Better Education 

For Future Students 

We might begin catching up to the more famous

with private institutions, that we can equal or surpass 
them in educating our students who are granted de- 

Through the new marking system, the State Uni- 
versity, despite its obligation to the taxpayers of the 
Commonwealth to accept so many students, can raise 
its academic standards. We can grant degrees to those

scrape by with payment of tuition, fees, and sixty per-

Why Not Two "Most 
Powerful Newspapers?" 

"The most powerful newspaper on campus should 
not be allowed to continue with its power unchal- 
lenged." ., . , 

This is not a Collegian policy as yet; it is merely 
a personal opinion of your Tuesday Editor. Function- 
allv the Editor of each issue expresses the opinion 

idVhe staH- ancl theoretically of the student body. Ac- 1 cent in course achievement, 
tually, he expresses personal opinion of your Tuesday 
Editor. Functionally, the Editor of each issue ex- 
presses the opinion of the staff, and theoretically of 
the student body. Actually, he expresses personal opin- 
ions covering up with the use of the first person plural, 
-we" Coming under the heading "THE official under- 
graduate newspaper," the past policy has been for Edi- 
tors to complement each other, and either agree on 
disputed issues, or leave them alone. Is this a healthy 


My personal answer is ft resounding NO. 1 he coi- 
legian has made rapid strides over the past few years, 
and the present stiuation finds two completely separ- 
ate editorial statfs (with the exception of the Execu- 
tive Editor who coordinates the business and editorial 
sections), publishing two separate newspapers, but 
running under the same masthead. Since we have the 
facilities to express public opinion, and truly present 
contrasting sides of issues and policies, why should 
we not utilize them? 

Other colleges have two separate newspapers on 
the same campus. Smith College tried this for a while, 
but found it financially unsound, and so consolidated 
the Smith Scan and the Smith Current into the present 
Smith Sophian. With our -captive" audience, composed 
oi forced subscribers, we are allowed publication with- 
out financial interruption. We do not propose a change 
in such an advantageous structure. The proposal 18 
simply to put to a Wetter use a system already inbe- 
ing. It involves a possible contradiction of one staff by 
another. It would present, in important isaues, more 
than one conclusion. It would perhaps provoke students 
B more regular expression of opinion. It would per- 
mit a truer picture of the opinion of the campus. It 
would prevent one "powerful" newspaper, and present 
two newspapers serving the students in their own 



Some parties have suggested that Collegian staff 
members write letters to the editor in opposition or 
agreement with editorial conclusion. In this I do not 
believe. Let us editorialize more than one opinion, 
rather than trumping up opposition. 

Students, this is a personal appeal for you to let 
the Publishing Board of the Collegian know tf you 
want more than one side of issues concerning you. 
Don't let 10 people determine what you are paying for. 
Make your opinion known through the existing two 

issues of your newspaper.

Is Finland Behind An Iron Curtain? 
The Political Situation 

(Ed. Kate: This h the third in a series of articles mtm 
ducing our readers to Finland— btr land and her problems. The 
series h uritten by Mr, "Mac" Makela. a Finnish Exchange stu- 
dent. Other columns u ill include: Sonne) of Livelihood— The

quired Military Training and Military Bad ground: Sports in

The 20()-man Parliament, with which l dealt last time, la the 

political renter of Finland. There are six political parties rep 
resented today, the rightist National Coalition, the center Fin- 
nish People's Party, the Swedish People's Tarty, the Agrarian 
Union, the Finnish Social-Democratic Party and the leftist Fin- 
nish People's Democratic Union. Party lines are drawn accord- 
ing to issues dividing the various social classes, the two lang- 
uage groups (Finnish and Swedish) and the question of rela- 
tions between Finland and Russia. 

The six parties are usually divided into the so-called burgeois 
camp and the socialistic factions, the last composed of the Fin- 
nish Social Democrats and "People's Democrats". During the 
period of national Independence, the burgeois parties have always 
controlled the majority in Parliament, and they have always 
won more vote.; than the labor factions. The largest parties are 
the Soda! Democrats and the Agrarians. During the period of 
Independence, the cabinets have been either coalitions or single 
party minority groups. A characteristic of the multiparty system 
in Finland is its comparative stability. The balance of political 
power has undergone , iy few changes from one parliamentary 
election to another. 

Today, the Communists have 33 members in the 200 man Par- 
liament, but have no cabinet members. The position of the Co:., 
munist People's Democratic Union is difficult, for the other five 
parties are in conflict with it. The Communist party was estab- 
lished during the War oi Independence In 1918, but the action 
and even the existence of the party was forbidden by law in the 
I930's. It was established again after the Second World War 
The "noisy men" of political life, the Communists are continually 
criticised and ridiculed by the other parties and their organ 
newspapers. The majority Of the Finnish people hate Commun- 
ism because i» poses a threat to their national character.

Freshman Elections Unfair 

To the Editor: 

During these first months on the campus I have bad Buffl- 
: ,.■„.,, , to be proud of the management and direction of 

all student affairs. Therefore it is with profound dissatisfaction 
that I view these elections for freshman class officers. There 
seem.- to be no organisation to the procedure, nor does then 
to be anyone who knows what is going on. Unfortunately 
reflects no good light on the Senate which is supposed to 
run , elections. The voting procedure is absolutely mean- 

tor there la no procedure, hast in the primaries. Eligi- 
bility Of the candidates was not even considered nor was it 
made known to anyone what the qualifications were.

trinated and that it be made known to everyone. If this elec- 
tion is let go uncorrected, elections in the future will reflect this 
attitude of undemocratic Ideas, It is not something the Uni-

(IP)— The University of Colorado faculty senate committee 
on student organizations and social life recently issued a revi- 
sion of the campus social code. Set up under the new revision 
are rules for social life, registration of functions, chaperones, 
liquor, closing hours, grade averages, and the uses of Univer- 
sity facilities for advertising events. 

Student self-responsibility in connection with University 
social life was emphasized by the committee. The committee 
felt that the high level of student behavior has resulted from 
University reliance upon the students' good taste and personal 
sense of responsibility. 

The faculty senate committee's liquor policy, members 
state, is an experiment and a compromise involving a minimum 
of rules and a maximum of individual and group responsibility. 
Liquor provision states that no alcoholic beverages are allowed 
on campus or in University supervised houses (including resi- 
dence halls, sorority and fraternity houses, or University ap- 
proved rooming houses.) All-school functions such as Home- 
coming, Colorado U days, etc., are included in this rule. 

Any students found guilty of participating in mob action, 
invasion of others' living quarters, destruction of property or 
theft will be subject to dismissal or suspension from the Uni- 
versity or to any other penalty determined by a student agency 
or the committee on student discipline. 

The University social code also requires that approved 
chaperones be present at all campus and off-campus functions.

These are the true facts, verifiable by all concerned in the

various misinformed students are spreading, and that have be-

Finland'- International Position 
Finland is one of th< nations whoa acceptance to the I N 
is a problem. The west wants to accept Finland and Italy, but 
ia has compounded the acceptance of these two nations with 
the acceptance of three • thers, Poland, Rumania, and Red Chi 
Finland is a iv.emb. i of ten technical bodies of the U.N., and 
she has officially part cipated extensively in international 
nonuc, social, and cultural co-operative activities. Formal poli- 
tical relations with Russia prevent Finland from participating 
in int. mational politics. The linns are not. in fact, willing to be 
involved m today's world power struggle. They call themselves 
a Northern people, as opposed to Western or Kastern, although 
they are so western-minded that e\en the Finnish newspaper- 
get their Moscow new- vis London and New York. 

WWII was a "bitter I it to bit* and swallow" to the Finns. 
its consequences will not easily be forgotten. In 11)40 Finland 
was forced to cede territory in north and southeast Finland to 
the USSR. After recovering her losses, Finland was obliged, in 
1944, to cede the same areas, together with Petsamo, in the 
north, as a result of which she lost her only arctic harbor and 
the richest nickel mine- in Europe. The Armistice of Moscow in 
1944 (the terms of which woe confirmed by the Treaty of Peace 
in Paris three years Utter) compelled Finland to, among other 
things, lease the Porkka.a district, near Helsinki to Russia, to 
reduce her military forces to prewar strength, and to pay over 
$700,000,000 in reparations. The debts are paid now, but the) 
cost dearly under postwar circumstances. They were expense- 
caused by the war to Finland, but they were not the only costs. 
About 80,000 Finns were killed in WWII, and H per cent of 
them were 20-24 years of age. The influences of the war on Fin 
land's economics and political relations, etc., were huge. 

At the present time, the Russians are trying to "conquer Fin- 
land" through trade, since they did not succeed through the 
Treaty of Peace and its supplement, the agreement of "Friend- 
ship, Co-operation, and Mutual Assistance" between Finland and 
the USSR, an agreement which is essentially bad on paper, but 
is not too practicable. Personally I can say that the Finns do 
not pay too much attention to this agreement. The Finns can- 
not trust their eastern neighbor. 

The Present Mood in Finland 

"The Russians may take over our economy, but they will nev 
er take over our souls" said a Finnish newspaper editor to an 
\P correspondent. He continued, "Nothing else really matters 
;o long as we are allowed to remain Finns." This correspondent. 
Mr. Oliver G. Clausen, whose article in the New York Time- 
Magazine 1 want to quote, continues: "On one hand, the Finn- 
ridicule America's anti-Soviet "hysteria", on the other, they an 
contemptuous of East European satellites who lack the guts to 
remain free . . . They have won through against impossible odds 
before; they are sure that they will do it again." Mr. Clausen 
tells that when Socialist ex-Premier and now Speaker of Parlia- 
ment K-A Fagerholm was asked whether the Finns would sub- 
mit he had answered: "No. We're just not that kind of people 
Then reflecting on the fearful odds his country is up against, he 
had added: "Should they move in— well, remember that two 
thirds of Finland is forest. Oh yes, we've got woods to fight 
from." Will this kind of nation submit to Russian domination? 

Hundreds of Finnish students, scientists, artists, statesmen, 
businessmen and tourists are studying, teaching, or travelling 
in Western countries. No passport is needed if someone wants 
to leave Finland for Scandinavian countries. Is this kind of na- 
tion behind the iron curtain? NO. If Finland were behind the 
Iron curtain, I wouldn't he here.

Outstanding young athletes around

UM's Little All America Tony 

Chambers received the first of this 
year's accolades by being named to 
the Boston Posi all New England 
small collage eleven. 

Despite the fact that Tony had no

fense and defense to gain the honor. 
The award is even more .spectacular 
in that he played on a losing team.

However, in the clutch, Chambers 

would come through with one of his 
patented sensational catches to help 
set MP a score Of else bieak through 
and smash an opposing Lack SO hard 
that he would fumble. 

It is notable that no CoUegS placed

Completed Sidewalks 
Give UM City Look 

The U. of M. has added a city 
look with the construction of many 
new sidewalks. 

New walks have been put in be- 
hind Clark hall to the Greenhouses, 
between Hasbrouck and Marshall 
Hall, including steps up the bank, 
and in Ellis Drive across the triangle. 
The sidewalk now in process between 
Draper and Stockhridge will be the 
last for this season. 

Kinsey . . . 

( outturn (I from /«(</( ' 
and Dr. Krlick, who spoke on Sexual 
Behavior in the Human Female, em- 
phasised that although the reports 
are not valid for all men and women, 
they are valid concerning the groups 
which they represent and are val- 
uable for reference in clinical work. 
More research is needed, they noted, 
eoneerning those groups not repre- 
sented in Kinsey's survey. 

Regarding the implications of the 
reports, Dr. Korson and Dr. Erlick 
pointed out the discrepancy between 
actual behavior and that defined as 
acceptable by our moral and civil 
codes of law. Dr. Krlick stressed that, 
since the ba«ic purpose of law is 
to protect the many from the few, 
and since in this case if is the many 
which transgress the law, there is 

something wrong with the law* 

Rev. Temple, speaking for the 
Christian moral code, declared that 
this code, from which our civil code 
is derived, is based on the revealed 
law of God, and that it is necessun 
for this code to stand if morals in 
general are not to he lo«ered. 

Many questions from the audience 
followed the interpretations of the 
panel. The ensuing discussion, how- 
ever, did not yield any synthesis of 
opinion on the controversial implica- 
tions of the Kinsey reports.

Shell Oil Co. wanted a small brick bjiild- 
ing in Illinois to be able to teletype auto- 
matically to a dispatcher in Radio City- 
more than 800 miles away. The building 
in Dennison, 111., is one of four pumping 
stations on an important oil line. For 
efficiency, all these stations were to be 
controlled from New York. Bell System 
engineers were asked to help. 

Now the New York dispatcher oper- 
ates these stations by using an ordinary 
telephone dial. By dialing a number, he 
can make a pumping station automati- 
cally report back its meter readings by 

teletype! He also dials numbers t« open 
and shut valves, start and stop pumps, 
and summon an attendant. It's done 
through Bell System facilities. 

These remote - control installations 
represent salesmanship, research and 
engineering skill on the part of many 
Bell System people. That's the reason 
there are rewarding opportunities in 
many lines for college people in the tele- 
phone company. Why not check soon 
with your Placement Officer on your 
chances to start with the Bell System 
after graduation?

Arrived, Papa swung the barn 
door open wide. "I'm planted," he 
cried expansively, and he silhouetted 
his crew on the threshold. "Fall in!" 
cried the local cats in chorus vivendi, 
and Papa Strut ushered in his crazy 
red-nock four. But little Nemo, who 
had just joined, was really hardly 
with it, and he began to look very 
much the worse amid the greetings. 
"Papa," he said, "I'm going to 
pick up on some of these wild F<>eds. 
Dig you later." 

"Dig me now!" roared Papa in a 
very nasty tone indeed and little 
Nemo scaled the stand looking not 
at all. 

"Say, Strut," said the M. C, "I 
don't want to come right out and 
ask to see the kid's card, but he 
don't look like it at all. In fact, he 
looks (and he lowered his voire to 
a whisper), like a Stan Kenton fan. 
I mean definitely out of it, Strut." 
This put Strut, who was already 
towering, into a towering rage. 

"Juice me!" he cried, and Mama 
stuck the bottle of juice she had 
promised to little Nemo into his ex- 
tended five. Cooling the cask in less 
than allegro, Strut put the empty 
from him in no uncertain, in fact, 
right through the ouvred porte. 

"Sound me!" he bellowed, and he 
stared right at little Nemo. 

"But Papa," pleaded little Nemo, 
"you know I'm not up to solo. Give 
me a beat, Dad. Ground me." 

"I'll ground you!" shouted Strut, 
still in towering, and he belted little 
Nemo across the stand and under the 
raised board of the grand piano,

which crashed down and imprisoned 
little Nemo amid the strings. 

Just then, the farmer, who was 
awakened in the early morning of 
Thanksgiving by the ruckus in his 
turkey house, burst through the coop 
door, hatchet in hand. "Give me 
some skin!" cried the rustic, and 
grasping the turkeys by their crops, 
he dispatched the session forthwith. 

All but little Nemo, who, of course, 
was definitely out of it; in the piano. 
And the moral of this story is that 
if you must be a turkey around

overwhelming victory to his person; 
popularity, past leadership, and re< 
ord of renewing Germany's prestig. 
The elections; were quite differer • 
from our own as Lowenstein d< 
scribed them. "We conduct our ele< 
tions just by shouting; they conduct 
theirs by going to the courts an 
securing injunctions of libel and slai 
der against their opponents", he sai- 
"Party leaders treated each othc 
with kid gloves," he added. 

Lowenstein saw danger in the ah 
solute majority of the Christian Dem 
ocratic party, for Adenauer's powei 
will make it possible for his part\ 
to do away with minority checks on 
on government. The Social Demi 
crate, although defeated, received I 
of the total vote. Lowenstein M 
desperation and radicalism as a pos- 
sible effect of this frustration of 
large minority. 

When asked about rearmament, L< 
wenstein stated that the German- 
were now pacifists. They believed th 
postwar assurances that Germam 
would not soon again be allowed t" 
rearm. "They are resentful about be 
ing in uniform, and the opposition of 
young people to being pushed around 
by sergeants is universal," Lowen 
stein declared. "If we have to rearm, 
let America pay for it," he cited a- 
the present resigned attitude. How 
ever, they are being conditioned to ac

Summing up the present "will t. 
fight" in Europe, he said, "the Gei 
mans are the only soldiers who wil 
fight against the Communists." 

Concerning American foreign pol 
icy in Europe, Dr. Lowenstein sail 
that it was now largely conditioner 
by Adenauer and German interests- 
He suggested the concept of a Bonn 
Seoul-Washington orbit and the pros 
pect of the two 78-year-old rulers 
Dr. Sigmund Rhee and Dr. Konrar 
Adenauer, having a potent part it 
shaping American foreign policy. 

You'll be at the head of the jet parade at Boeing 



For long-range opportunities, it's hard to 
beat the jet aircraft field. If you want to 
get into this exciting branch of engineer- 
ing after you graduate, get in at the 
head of the parade— at Boeing. 

Through the fighter fast B-47 six-jet 
bomber, and the giant new eight jet B-52, 
Boeing has acquired more experience 
designing, flying and building multi-jet 
aircraft than any other company, either 
here or abroad. In addition, Boeing is 
the first American company to announce 
its entry into the jet transport field. 

Engineering graduates will find in 
the aviation industry an unusually wide 
range of experience, and great breadth 
of application — from pure research to 
production design, all going on at once. 
Boeing is constantly alert to new tech- 

niques and materials, and approaches 
them without limitations. Extensive sub- 
contracting and major procurement pro- 
grams, all directed and controlled by 
engineers, afford varied experience and 
broad contacts and relationships. 

Aircraft development is such an inte- 
gral part of our national life that young 
graduates can enter it with full expecta- 
tion of a rewarding, long-term career. 
Boeing, now in its 37th year of opera- 
tion, employs more Engineers today than 
even at the peak of World War II. Its 
projects include guided missiles, research 
on supersonic flight and nuclear power 
for aircraft. 

Boeing engineering activity is concen- 
trated at Seattle in the Pacific Northwest, 
and Wichita in the Midwest. These 

communities offer a wide variety of rec- 
reational opportunities. Both are fresh, 
modem cities with fine residential sec- 
tions and shopping districts, and schools 
of higher learning where engineers can 
study for advanced degrees. 

There are openings in ALL branches 
of engineering (mechanical, civil, elec- 
trical, aeronautical, and related fields), 
RESEARCH and TOOLING. Also for servo- 
mechanism and electronics designers and 
analysts, and physicists and mathemati- 
cians with advanced degrees.

Campus Varieties To Feature 
Minstrel Show & Chorus of 70 


"Campus Varieties", sponsored by 
Adelphia and Isogon and based on an 
oldfashioned minstral show will be 
presented in Bowker auditorium, 
Jan. 8-9. 

The two-act show features song- 
and-dance routines, oldtime melo- 
drama along the line of "I'm Just a 
Bird in a Gilded Cage", popular 
songs, end men, and other specialty 

The original script for the min- 
strel show was contributed by Pat 
McMahon, '56. This script has been 
modified and added to according to 
the talents of the group. 

The chorus of 70 is under the 
direction of Ed Reidy of Northamp- 
ton. Mr. Reidy who is connected with 
Juvenile Department of the Police 
for the state has done over 75 min- 
strel shows. 

A new note in U.M. campus var- 
iety shows is the "pony chorus", a 
tap line, under the direction of Mar- 
ilyn Gross, '57, formerly of the re- 
nowned "Rockettes" of New York 
City. These six girls will do two 
tap routines. 

Except for Mr. Reidy, the show is 
completely a student project. Joe 
Powers, president of Adelphia, is gen- 
eral manager, and Betty Lupien, pres- 

ident of Isogon. is general chairman 
Other members of Adelphia and 
Isogon head the various committees

Annual Blood Drive 
To Aid Home Front 

Blood collected by the AFROTC 
will be used for three purposes: to 
replace that used by local people, 
for overseas hospitals, and in the pre- 
vention of polio. 

A freshman, Henry Finik, in a re- 
cent automobile accident, and the 
Property Officer Mr. Utley have used 
blood which must be replaced. Michael 
Dubin, '57, in a Boston hospital, needs 
blood also. 

The Air ROTC is sponsoring a 
blood drive for these causes on Tues- 
day and Wednesday, Dec. 8 and 9. 
Last year's record of 225 pints in 
one day must be beat with at least 
500 pints. 

Everyone scheduled to give should 
check with their dorm, fraternity, or 
sorority bulletin board on Sunday, 
Dec. 6. The appointment time and 
place will be listed. 

Those who have not signed up are 
urged to do so by contacting Lt. Cole

Chanukah Festival 
Marked By Hillel 

The members of the B'nai B'rith 
Hillel Foundation in co-operation 
with the Sholem Lodge of Spring- 
field celebrated the annual Chanukah 
Festival at Skinner Auditorium Wed- 
nesday evening. 

Ruth Rubin, eminent folk-singer 
and recording artist, highlighted the 
program. Miss Rubin, a graduate of 
the University of Pennsylvania, is a 
young composer, musician, and auth- 
or of piano arrangements. 

The Chanukah Festival, or the 
Feast of Lights, celebrates the vic- 
tory of the Maccabees over the Syr- 
ians. This Holiday of Freedom was 
first celebrated around 165 B. C. This 
year it began on Dec. 1, and is con- 
tinuing for eight days. Each night 
a candle is lit, one more being lit 
each of the eight nights. 

The program Wednesday evening 
began by a few words from Marvin 
Bass, president of the Hillel Foun- 
dation, and Mr. Arthur Leopold, 
president of Sholem Lodge. 

Rabbi Ruchames presented the tra- 
ditional Chanukah services, followed 
by the Candlelighting Ceremony led 
by Norman Kaufman. Yiddish and 
Israeli folk-songs were sung by the 
large audience, after which refresh- 
ments were served.

Grades vs. Greeks

rush parties, or Grades vs. Greek*. This conflict affects a great 

many people on campus, and the effect can be permanent and 

disastrous. Something can and should be done. 

Since second semester does not have a forma rush period the 
aporoaching week or ten days is the only period in which the 
SeekTask a concession from the scholastic life on campus. Rush- 
ing is scheduled a year in advance, long before any professor 
hi made out his semester work plan; yet many professois, al- 
though they realize rushing dates, schedule important exams 
during this period. For a fraternity or sorority member under 
obhgation to his house and to his scolarship, there is no solution 
o fie resulting di.emna. He must attend rushing funcUons — 
ly for five consevutive nights, and must also try to find time to 
prepare for his exam-or exams. No student can be expected to 
do his best work under such conditions. 

Education is more than book learning The truly educated per- 
son today should achieve a sense of social completeness to sup- 
SemeThis textbook knowledge-he should know how to mix 
with people and appreciate them. One way to accomplish his- 
a way which has been approved on this campus-is through fra- 
ternity or sorority membership. Since Greek houses have been 
approved, what right does anyone, faculty or admmistration, 
have to make an individual suffer because oi his affiliation. 

Grades are unjust and inadequate, but they are the only record 
we and our future employer* have to judge our co lege achieve- 
ment In manv cases a single exam mark has great influence on 
aTnal grade. It seems only right, then, to give the student every 
possible chance to demonstrate his ability. Here is an occasion 
where student-faculty cooperation is imperative. 

We realize that scholastics are our main purpose in coming 
to college. We are NOT suppesting that they be subordinated to 
extra curricular activities. ... 

In this case, however, over 1|3 of the student body is adversely 
affected. Sorority and fraternity membership (as yet available 
for only last semester) was 1432; the total student enrollment 

this semester is 3491. -jwAw 

We feel that this situation is an unnecessary one. The solution 
is evident, and requires only cooperation. 

Professors have only to check the academic calendar before 
making out their schedules. Often it would be a case of moving 
"tentative exam one week ahead or back. Is this too much to 
request? If this were done, the professor would be more sat sfied 
with the studv and concentration students had contributed and 
indents will have had a fairer chance to indicate their know- 
ledge. Everyone would benefit. «-— • p c

The University 
Growth and Outgrowth 

by Madeleine May 

UM at Fort Devens 

( We a University maturing to meet local, state, and national needs, are 
forming a two-fold j/orj-ouTGROWTH of former ideals and traditions and 
growth from these to new roles. This series hopes to inscribe part of that 

U. Of M. at Fort Devens 

Is it possible to secure a staff, assemble a student body, and prepare fa- 
cilities to carry out a college program within a period of seventy-five days . 
That is exactly what was done at the Massachusetts State College dunng 

the summer of 1946. .. 

At that time the College underwent the most rapid growth in its entire 
history due to an emergency situation which was brought about by the 
influx of veterans of World War II who desired and deserved a college ed- 
ucation. The campus at Amherst was expanded as much as Possible, but 
the most unique program in the country was carried out at Fort Devens 
in Ayer, Massachusetts. 

How did it Happen? 
On May 14, 1946, Governor Tobin met with the college presidents of all 
the men's and Co-ed colleges in Massachusetts and the Executive and Fi- 
nance Committees of the State to discuss the possibility of establishing a 
college at Fort Devens to provide educational opportunities for qualified 
veterans. It was decided that the school would be located at Fort Devens 
and would provide a two year course (Freshman and Sophomore years). 
The veterans were then assured of being transferred to the University of 
Massachusetts or else they could transfer to any school of their choice where 
they could be accepted. „ ,. mnc . 

The act giving authority to establish the branch at Fort Devens was 
passed in record time on June 14 of that same year. On June 26, President 
Baker formed the Augmented Board which included the trustees of Massa- 
chusetts State College, Joseph Bartlett, Commissioner of Education, and 
the presidents of such colleges as Harvard, Amherst, Boston College, Holy 
Cross, and Northeastern. 

Garages and barracks converted to classrooms 
Tre classroom and laboratory facilities were arranged with cooperation on 
all sides in a short amount of time. Warehouses, Barracks, maintenance 
shops, theaters, and clubhouses were successfully converted into classrooms 
and laboratories. What had formerly been two garages was now changed 
to a chemistry laboratory with two lecture halls, a balance room and 14 
laboratories. Another garage was converted into 20 classrooms and a lec- 
ture hall. A medical examination building became eight physics labs, and 
the site of a new machine shop was :in old bakery. 

Barracks were used as dormitories at Devens with as many as twenty 
students occupying a single room, which made studying difficult, even with 
separate group studying rooms.

16,000 volumes added to U.M. Library 

The Library at Fort Devens, located in Worcester House, contained a 
modern collection of the humanities, modern languages and social sciences. 
A total of 16,000 volumes were transferred to the University of Massachu- 
setts when Fort Devens was discontinued in 1949. 

Unique staff makes furniture and paints blackboards 

A staff of 144 men, 49% of whom were under the age of 40, arrived on 
the campus in August, 1946. Office furniture was lacking, so the faculty 
members made it. Five days before the students arrived, the faculty turned 
out in overalls and worked for three days to move clothes lockers chairs, 
and beds into four dormitories. Others were busy painting signs and black- 

Because there were not many financial rewards offered to the faculty 
at Devens, the staff was composed of men of a somewhat adventurous and 
independent nature who wanted to do something worthwh.le for the vet- 
erans. This spirit was dominant in student-faculty relations throughout 
the program. 

Accommodated a total of 2,686 students 
The entire project lasted from October 1946 until May 1949. The first 
semester there was an enrollment of 1,310 students which grew to a peak 
enrollment of 1,764 one year later. The total number of students who were 
at Fort Devens was 2,686. The average age of the veterans was 22, which 
accounted for their maturity and serious mindedness. Of the students who 
left Devens, 40% transferred to the University of Massachusetts and 18.37c 
went to other colleges. The only degree ever given at Fort Devens was an 
Honorary degree presented by the Trustees to Governor Tobin. 

How they helped U. of M. Grow 

The change from Massachusetts state College to the University of Massa- 
chusetts was accelerated through the influence of the veterans at Fort Dev- 
ens and at the campus in Amherst. • . 

Our present constitution in the Senate was adopted from the original 
constitution at Fort Devens. The method of electing senators was also 
changed at this time. The Collegian felt the change by expanding to a twice 
weekly paper instead of a weekly. 

Perhaps the greatest accomplishment of the veterans was that they proved 
that a higher education can be extended to members of lower income group? 
<f there is cooperation from educational, social and governmental agencies. 
Given this opportunity, the veterans played an integral part in the growth 
of the University of Massachusetts.

Bermuda Talks Go Ahead As Laniel Is Backed 

The Bermuda Conference, to start this Friday, gained new impetus with 
the Russian agreement to a Big Four Conference. 

Discussion at Bermuda between Sir Winston Churchill. President Eisen- 
hower and Premier Laniel will give the West a chance to consolidate its 
position in preparation for talks with Russia. Some reporters feel, however, 
that France and Great Britain may be less eager to re-arm Germany if there 
[■ a prospect of cooperation with Russia. 

Laniel is attending the Conference in the position of a "lame duck". The 
French Government has experienced a crisis over the EDC question and 
LaniePs pro-EDC caretaker government received a vote of confidence. He is 
in Bermuda on the strength of that. 

Soviets Ask Big Four Conference 

A Soviet note of November 26 indicated that Moscow wishos a Big Four 

( onference. 

In a previous exchange of notes ending November 3, Moscow and the 
We*t were unable to agree on a Big Four Conference. These earlier letters 
of the Soviet asked that the West disband its system of alliances and bases. 
At the same time, the West asked that Russia withdraw from her salient. 
Neither side would give in. 

The Big Four Conference, the first since December 1947, does not neces- 
sarily mean that either side has altered its position. The conference will 
bo held in hopes of "easing tension" rather than of obtaining an actual 
settlement of the cold war. 

The conference will probably be held sometime before Christmas. 

Reparation Talks Start For U.N. POW's 

The Repatriation Commission has started to interview the pro-Com- 
munist UN prisoners. 

During the first dav of the interviews tome felt that the I N suffered a 
moral defeat when none of the 30 Koreans interviewed chose repatriation. 
Russia is expected to make good propaganda use out of this election of 

Communism. , 

The 30 non-repatriates may not be as much of a blow to the UN as the 
figures indicate. The prisoners were probably hand picked and completely 
indoctrinated. The UN made no attempt to persuade the prisoners. They 
were informed of their rights and asked to say whether or not they w.shed 
to be repatriated. Prisoners who have chosen Communism are being housed 
temporarily in separate compounds. 

Viet Minh Leader Offers Peace 

Indo-Chinese Communist leader Ho Chi Minh has offered to discuss a 
,„wsible armistice with the French authorities, statin* that h.s forces will 
stop fighting if the French do. The proposal ignored the legally reco K nizecl 
Vietnam government. 

Churchill 79 Years Old; Last WW H Book Published 

Sir Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of Great Britain, celebrated his 
T'lth birthday on Monday. Called the "sum of the first half of our century", 
Churchill has for 50 years been in world-wide view as a statesman, prophet 

and warrior. . . . . 

He won this year's Nobel Prize for Literature, chiefly for his chronicle 
of the Second World War. the last volume of which, entitled Triumph mul 
Traocdy telling "How the Great Democracies Triumphed and so Were Able 
to Resume the Follies Which Had So Nearly Cost Them Their Life", has 
recently been published. 

Stevenson Blasts 
Republicans For I 
Loitering, Slander 

by J. P. Lane 

Adlai Stevenson, in a major polit- 
ical speech to the Georgia legisla- 
ture, characterized the present He- 
publican administ ration as one of 
"promises, postponement, paralysis, 

and slander." 

His speech followed those of At- 
torney General Brownell and former 
president Truman concerning the 
White case, and the defeated Demo- 
cratic presidential candidate de- 
nounced the "new morality" in Wash- 
ington. He stated that the Republi- 
cans appeared to be observing a new 
law of "indictment by suspicion and 
conviction by accusation." Stevenson 
asserted that with Brownell's speech, 
the Eisenhower administ I at ion bad 
embraced McCarthyism. "What an 
end to "the Great Crusade!'" lie 

Stevenson was introduced by Gov- 
ernor Talmadge of Georgia and tin- 
former governor of Illinois expressed 
the opinion that the Democrats wore 
more united now than they have been 
for some time.

Senate to Question 
Canada's Gouzenko 

The Canadian government will al- 
low questioning of Igor Gouzenko by 
American investigators, but the U. S. 
Senate sulM-omittee will not be with- 
out restraints. 

Couzenko, a wartime Canadian Sov 
iot Kmbassy code clerk, who exposed 
a Russian spy ring in Canada, has 
been the subject of an exchange of 
notes between U. S. Secretary of State 
John Foster Dulles and Canada's Les 
ter Pearson. Dulles transmitted two 
notes for Senator Jenner of the Senate 
Internal Security Su I (committee re- 
questing that Gouzenko appear before 
the committee. Gouzenko has said he 
has no new information for the Sen- 
ators but would like to contribute "ad- 

Gouzenko 1st Canadian Charge 
The Canadian government said they 
will not continue to provide protection 
for the witness, who, since bis expose- 
must live in anonimity, except on the- 
terms. Pearson announced last week 
what these terms were: (1) The inter- 

Before I nation-wide- radio and tele 
vision audience, Senator Joseph Mc- 
Carthy, Repul»lic-an of Wisconsin, of 
fered communism as the issue for the 
L9M elections. 

Using time ostensibly gained to 
reply to charges by Harry Truman 
concerning "McCarthyism", Senator 
McCarthy devoted half of his talk to 
the record of the Republican Admin 
istration in foreign affairs and Coin 
munism in Government. 
First Deals With Truman Statements 
McCarthy opened his speech by de- 
fining Trumanism, "The placing of 
your political party above the interest 
of the country regardless of how much 
the country is damaged thereby." He 
then reviewed the White case, the rec- 
ord of the "Truman-Acheson" admin- 
istration concerning communism, and 
some investigations his committee is 
presently carrying on. 

McCarthy then turned to some of 
his pet peeves with the present admin- 

Names Himself As Issue 
Taking issue with White House 
hopes that communism would not be 
the chief focus of the 1954 congress- 
ional elections and that the Republi- 
cans would campaign on their legis- 
lative record, McCarthy predicted em- 
phatically that communism would be 
the issue. So saying, he offered him- 
self as the rallying point, declaring 
that the American people "have | 
chance to get rid of me as Chairman 
of the Investigation Committee next 
fall by defeating any Republican up 
for election." 

Offering to let the Republican party 
stand or fall on McCarthyism vs. Tru- 
manism, McCarthy turned to the pres- 
ent Administration's actions against 

Allowing that the White House has 
"Gotten rid of 1,456 . . . security 
risks", he charged that John Davies, 

view must l>e conducted under Canad- 
ian procedure, and (2) Canada must 
approve all testimony released to the

he does not like the Canadian stipu- 
lations. He has not yet said whether

of the "Aeheson l.attimore- Vincent 
White-Hiss group" has bee-n allowed 
to continue in government work in 
spite of recomnienelations by the Mr 
Carran Committee (now the McCarthy 
Committee) that he be brought to 
trial for helping communists into gov- 
ernment positions. 

McCarthy then criticized the foreign 
policy of John Foster Dulles, Secre- 
tary of State, demanding that im- 
mediate and strong measures be taken 
to force Red China to return over M0 
Americans who are, according to Army 
releases, still in the hands of the Coin 
munistH. He proposed to do this by 
forcing non-communist countries, par 
ticularly Great Britain, to stop trade 
with Communist China at pain of k>0- 
ing American financial aid. 

Speeech Irks White House 
First unofliciul reactions indicated 
that the Administration was none too 
happy with the ■pee eh . It was felt that 
the- facts of the DnvieS case- were- dis- 
torted, the foreign policy criticism was 
not called for, and that McCarthy 
saught to usurp the functions of party 
leadership and planning, and general- 
ly tried to bring himself to the fore on 
broadcast time granted for replying 
te» Truman's speech on the Harry Dex 
tc-i White case. It was also felt that 
the talk pointed up the Republican 
party splits for no good end 

Dulles Defends Foreign Policy 
John Foster Dulles issued the- first 
ollicial reply with a statement concern- 
ing foreign policy in which he said 
"We do not want weak or subservient 
allies. Our friends and allies are eh- 
pendable just because they are unwill- 
ing to be anyone's satellites." He- ad. I 
eel, "We shall Ik- firm . . , on what we 
l>elieve to be right . . . But we- shall 
try not to be arrogant. " 

For others, the speech see-im-d to 
clear doubts consenting McCarthy's 
ambitions. They feel that his state- 
ments indicate that he hopes some day 
to be President, whereas before the 
talk, there was widespread feeling 
that he hoped emly to be one of, or, at 
most, the party leader. 

The Administration is expected to 
take more definitive steps in this case 
than it has with any previous dis- 
agreements wilh McCarthy.

Frosh Hoopers Set 
To Meet Huskies 

Chet Gla.lchuck's freshman basket- 
ball squad is beginning to take shape 
I'nirersity after the second week of practice, 
and appears to be ready for its tilt 
with the Northeastern Frosh this 

The Five Little Indians will work 
most of their plays from a fast 
break, and they will also open up a 
new book of tricks in playing the 
bucket, the pivot, and the figure- 
eight, or weave play. They'll be using 
a man-to-man style of defense in the 
opener tomorrow. 

The probable starters for Satur- 
day's game include a trio from St. 
John's of Worcester; Jack Foley at 
guard, Vic McGrath at center, and 
Bill Mackey at forward. Jack Kirby 
and John Edgar will probably al- 
ternate at the other forward posi- 
tion, while John Brennan holds down 
the guard post. 

Although the team hasn't had any 
pre-season scrimmages to base a pre- 
diction on, Gladchuck seems to feel 
that the Frosh Quintet will top 
Northeastern, and will do better than 
last year's season.

Tall Foes To Play 
At Cage Tonight, 
Tomorrow at 8:15 

by Jack Chevalier 

King basketball resumes its annua 
reign over the University sports king 
dom tonight at 8:15 in the Cage, when 
the Redmen will lift the lid off anoth 
er hoop season against Norwich it 
i what promises to be an evenl\ 
matched tussle. 

Coach Bobby Curran, starting hi- 
Mcond winter at the helm of the Mar 
! oon and White, has high hopes of big 
! improvement over last year's 4-1". 
mark. In an effort to balance the 
team's lack of height with youth and 
speed, Coach Curran has inserted 
three Sophomores into the starting 


Worcester Pair At Forward* 

Paul Aho and Dick" Kid, the Wor- 
cester combo that sparked the Frosh 
to a successful season last year, will 
open up at forward slots. A third sec- 
ond year man, Jack Skypeck, will hold 
down a guard berth. 

Along with this trio of newcomers 
to the Varsity will be veteran Co-cap 
tains Bill Stephens and Jack MacLeod, 
center and guard respectively. Ste- 
phens has always been noted for hi> 
scoring prowess, while MacLeod has 
w .11 much approval for his work off 
the backboards. 

UM Lacks Height 
Height is definitely the element 
against the Redmen. Aho tops the 
starters in that department, standing 
(\ feet 2. Kid and MacLeod both go 
about 6 feet l'j while Stephens stands 
f. feet 1. Skypeck, only 6 feet 10 inch- 
es tall, makes up for it in speed and 
agility as he displayed in the tune-up 
against New Britain last Tuesday. 

Another factor which may hurt tin 
Curranmen is their lack of depth. Vet 
eran reserves include Kd Conceison. 
Hank Mosychuk, Gerry Cohen, and 
Johnny Howard. Unless the Sopho- 
more sub crew comes through with 
some good performances, the Redmen 
may be in for some tough sledding 
during their heavy, 23 game slate. 
Opposing Prospects Hazy 
As for the opposition, little is 
known at this early date. Both Nor- 
wich and Northeastern, UM's Satur- 
day night playmate, will be opening 
their campaigns and prospects are net 
yet definite. 

Spearheaded by lanky Ed Meehan. 
a 6 feet 5 center, the Norwich cagers 
are virtually unknown to Coach Cur- 
ran. Their starting lineup consists of 
Captain Sam Passalacqua and Dale 
Montgomery at forwards, Meehan at 
center, and Chet Szwejkowski and 
Bob Yeadon at guards. 

Huskies Won Over Redmen 
Coach Joe Zabilski's Northeastern 
Huskies, who topped the Redmen last 
year 62-5<i and who don't expect to 
be as strong this winter, meet Mass 
achusetts Saturday at 8:15. The Prodi 
squads will take part in the prelim at 

George O'Rourke, talented forward, 
is the big gun for the Huskies. The 
team also sports four men who stand 
8 feet four— Dick Brooks, Bill Kearns. 
Bob Eastman, and Joe Wetzler. 

Student Tickets on Sale Next Week in Cage;

The new year will be ushered in in splendid fashion by one 
the finest sports attractions to be presented in this area when 
e Boston Celtics and Baltimore Bullets tangle in a NBA regu-

Lepkowski Named 
X-Country Captain 

Coach Lew Derby announced Wed- 
nesday that the 1954 edition of his 
New England champion cross country 
team will be captained by Will Lep- 
kowski. A sophomore from Salem, 
Lepkowski was on this year's team 
that swept to victory in both the 
Yankee conference and New England 
harrier championships, and coach 
Derby is depending on him to play a 
big part in next year's campaign. 

Lepkowski was known more for 
his ability as a track man, notably 
in the 440, than as a harrier when 
he came to the University last year, 
but he has rapidly developed into a 
I potentially great runner. 

Mermen Open 
Season Today 

At Boston U. 

The Redmen swimming team joun- 
ies to Boston today to open 1953-54 
season with Boston University. 

Last year, the Rogersmen topped 
the BU Mermen by a slim 44-40 
margin. The Redmen proceeded to 
finish their season with a 5-3 record 
for their first winning season in a 
number of years. 

Leading the Redmen attack will 
be a pair of seniors— Captain Buster 
Campbell and Joe Rogers. Others 
counted on to see much duty are Ed 
Hansen, Bob Smiley the only juniors 
on the squad. 

Many Sophomores 
Coach Joe Rogers has a whole host 
of promising swimmers among his 

With New Equipment, Rifle Team Starts New Season 

sophomores including Bob Gibbs who 
has been pushing Buster Campbell 
in practice in the 220 and 440 yard 
freestyle. John Bianchi and Tom 
Lyons are another pair of sophs 
who will see much action. 

The graduation of Dick Cornfoot, 
who was one of the outstanding back- 
strokers in New England, will be 
sorely felt by the Rogersmen. It looks 
as if Joe Rogers (son of the coach) 
will have to try and till the vacancy 

li ft by Cornfoot. This is not Joe's 
regular event, but he is working 
hard at it nevertheless. 

Another loss which the hurts the 
Redmen is Don Bell's deciding not 
to compete, at least in the first few 
meets. He is one of the best breast 
strokes m New England and Coach 
Rogers was counting heavily upon 
him. It looks as if sophomore Tom 
Lyons will have to try and fill thi*.

elimination of make-up privileges. 

They may also recommend expul- 
sion. Dean Hopkins has stated that he 
would generally put such recommend- 
ations into effect. 

The ad hoc committee has resolved 
that all traffic and parking violators 
be required to pay their fines within 
48 hours of receipt of ticket. Failure 
to comply with this time limit, ef- 
fective Dec. 11, will result in a sum- 
mons to appear before Judiciary for

The Provost's ad hoc committee felt 
that their immediate steps for improv- 
ing enforcement of the current ade- 
quate regulations "would be tried first 
to see what degree of cooperation can 
be achieved" by the students "before 
stronger measures are taken." 

The committee is meeting again on 
Jan. 4, 1954 to review the results of 
these measures and to propose strong- 
er measures should there be such a 
need. -

Noting that the many books being 
published on the meaning of life and 
how we should live are signs of the 
insecurity of our lives, Dr. Giamatti 
went on to say that Dante exhibits 
a sense of personal security that our 
modern philosophers do not. 

Dante's interpretations of Hell and 
Purgatory symbolize the torments we 
experience in our living when our

It's high time that the men on this campus caught

Problem of the Week 

Two boys are riding their bicycles into town from opposite 
directions. Each starts from a point 10 miles outside of town 
and each rides with a constant speed of eight miles per hour. 
A bee starts at one bicycle and flies until he meets the other, 
then turns around and flies back to the first bicycle, and repeats 
this process until the two riders meet in town. If the speed of 
the bee is 12 miles per hour, how much distance does he cover 
in his flight? 

Answer to Problem of November 10-The visible portion of 
the escalator contains 42 steps. Submitting the earliest correct 
solution was William Ford, 322 Baker House. He may obtain 
his prize in the Mathematics office. A correct solution was also 
submitted by Jack Brin. 

The Mathematics Club will award a prize of one dollar to 
the student submitting the earliest correct solution. Please 
leave your solutions, tlong with your name and campus ad- 
dress, with the secretary in the Mathematics Building. 

\n to the 

,-aternitv Council did a little more to exploit the val- ( 

, e8 of fraternities than "fighting administration op-i 


The Dean of Men, formally adviser for several years 
o the Council, has in past year* proposed several 
neana of raising the academic achievement and stand- 
ings of U of M. fraternities similar to those ot Dean 
lohn Hocutt at the University of Delaware. Dean Hop- 
kins' proposals received very little consideration in 
the past They were all but laughed out of the Council 
last year. Based on the consistent decline in fraternity 
averages over the past few years, we strongly urge 
that the following suggestions be considered by the 
Council, and if not, by the fraternities themselves, as 
Dean Hocutt proposes elsewhere on this page: 

1 The IFC should institute a minimum academic 
requirement for pledging freshmen or upperclassmen. 
Freshmen should have a 70 average (2.0 on the pro- 
ved grading system) based on Dean's Saturday (mid- 
semester) grades. Upperclassmen must have a 70 (Z.OJ 
average based on the preceeding semester's grades, in 
>rder to be eligible for pledging. 

2 Eligibility for initiation for all pledges be estab- 
lished at a 70 (2.0) average for the semester preceed- 

ng proposed initiation. 

3 Interfraternity scholarship competition be re-in- 
stituted as an integral part of all-around fraternity 
competition, as had been done in the past.

West Virginia Warning 
Is Worthwhile Wisdom 

( IP>_Fraternity rushing ended this weekend at West Vir- 
ginia University, and with it comes the perpetrations of an un- 
fortunate decision in attitude throughout the campus. 

Those men^who decided to become affiliated have been flattered 
and catered to by upper-classmen for two weeks. In a natural 
human way, their ego has been lifted and unfortunately they 
fend to assume a "superior" attitude. But there is one thing that 
they must remember: wearing a badge on a jacket does not make 
one man better than another . . . 

Just as it's no special recommendation, being affiliated is not 
condemnation. It offers a chance for development in many areas 
. that might otherwise have been left unexplored. Just as af- 
filiated men should not assume a superior attitude, they should 
not try to be patronizing. Nothing could be more disgusting 
(than) "be kind to the independents." 

Hut there is another side— the idea that all affiliated men are 
white-backed, blue-coated playboys, who treat college life as 
one big party and have a monopoly on stupidity. That . . . atti- 
tude is just as disgusting. 

The affiliated, non-affiliated friction is the most unfortunate 
division on campus. Both sides are at fault and both must work 
to dispel what are only superficial distinctions. . . 

< IP)— Reviewing the report from the National Interfraternity 
Conference, Dean of Students John E. Hocutt has recommended 
the following suggestions for the improvement of fraternity 
scholarship at the University of Deleware: 

1 The Interfraternity Council should institute a scholastic 
requirement to determine eligibility for pledging. A freshman 
should not be pledged by a fraternity unless he has at least 
■ 2 index for the semester preceding the one in which he 
pledged. An upperdassman should have a cumulative index of 
•it least 2 If the Intel-fraternity Council doesn't adopt a scho- 
lastic pledging requirement, individual fraternities which have 
not already done so should adopt their own requirements. 

2 The Interfraternity Council should raise the scholastic re- 
quirement for initiation. To be eligible for initiation, a student 
should have an index of 2.25 for the semester preceding initia- 
tion, plus a cumulative index of 2.0. 

8 The fraternities should drop pledjjes who fail to meet in- 
itiation requirements for as many as two semesters following 

pledging. , ,. . . A . 

4 The fraternities should establish modest scholarships to 
award each year to the ranking scholars in their fraternities 

5 The fraternities should select capable, energetic, scholarship 
chairmen who will make the chapters more scholarship con-

If You Hate Profs... 

Plans Persistant Plaguing 

(ACP)— A Columnist for the Plainsman, Alabama Polytechnic 
Institute, has started what he calls the "1 Hate Professors" club, 
and he invites all interested parties to join. 

The rules, he says, arc quite simple, and you need only follow 
"the ones adaptable to your special talents." Here are a few of 
the more salient ones: 

* Be late to all classes at least half the time. When entering 
a classroom late, glare at the professor and insinuate that he 
started the class 10 minutes early. 

* Talk to one or more of your classmates in a whisper just 
loud enough for the instructor to hear you, but not loud enough 
for him to understand the words. 

* Fifteen minutes before the end of the class hour, begin to 
stack your books neatly, put on your coat and look expectantly 
toward the door. Keep an eye on your watch throughout the 
entire period, and the other eye looking out the window. If a 
window isn't handy, stare at the ceiling from time to time. 

* Laugh at everything even remotely amusing, except your 
instructor's witticisms. 

* If you must ask a question, be sure that it is completely off 
the subject, or one that the professor cannot answer. 

Major Arguments and Logic 

One of the arguments opposing these recommenda- 
tions has been that fraternities lose "good men who 
"-nay fail to meet the requirements. Avoiding argument 
over trivial points such as a definition of "good men , 
we shall base our refutation on the proposed Univer- 
sity grading system which stipulates that a man must 
ichieve a cumulative 70 (2.0) average as a degree re- 
tirement. A minimum pledging average would give 
ncentive to an unrealistic freshman (or upperclass- 
nan), and thus help him on his way toward achieving 
i University requirement. The same "defense can be 
ipP lied when fraternities complain, "What will that 
lo to the size of our pledge classes?" Such academic 
equipment* may give more impetus to second^ se- 
th«t mav eventually lead to se< 


neater pledging, that may eventually lead to second se- 

or "delayed" rushing which many 
throughout the country have found most successful

Ray Anthony, whose record of Dragnet is the biggest or- 
chestral selling record of recent months, is one former Glenn 
Miller sideman who will not lie seen in the upcoming film ver- 
sion of the late maestro's life. The young man, who joined the 
group in 1940 and left to K o into the Navy in 1942, is too busy 
with his own hand to take time off to do a stint in the films. 
After his four-year hitch in the service, the leader took up his 
trumpet and formed his own band, playing the top spots in the 
country. He is Capitol Records' number one band, and previous 
to Dragnet, his biggest hit was Nevertheless. 

Talking about Dragnet, there's a plethora of recordings from 
television, following the same pattern set by all the discs based 
on film themes in the last few years. There's Melancholy Seren- 
ade from the Jackie Gleason show; Johnny Desmond etched 
Danger from the action program of the same name; and to light- 
en it all up now, there's Mr. Peepers from the comedy half-hour 
show starring Wally Cox. 

Look for an upsurge on the dancing front. The National Ball- 
room Operators of America are getting behind the move to get 
more people on the dance doors. There'll be a special contest 
during the summer, with loads of prizes for the best dancers; 
and a National Dance Week, promoted by Down Beat Magazine, 
with tie-ins with television and radio programs.

Princeon, N.J. (IP)— The most basic faculty criticism of the 
present Reserve Officer's Training Corps structure in the Amer- 
ican college is that the subjects taught under ROTC are "intel- 
lectually thin" and are mainly concerned with "dull memoriz- 
ing of detailed facts," according to President Harold W. Dodds 
of Princeton University. This criticism, says Dr. Dodds, is 
sound and the defects in the ROTC studies should be corrected. 
Dr. Dodds points out that "total war is more than a strictly 
military problem. The 'know why' is an essential element of 
the 'know how' and should be a pail of the epuiqment of an 
ROTC graduate." His remedy calls for a close integration be- 
tween college and ROTC courses, and a closer alliance between 
academic and military professors. 

New For Them — Old For Us 
At Princeton, Dr. Dodds says, the history department has 
constructed a new course in military history which is required 
for ROTC students and also open to civilian students as an 
elective. According to Dr. Dodds, both academic and military 
professors are pleased with the results. He also suggests a 
course in geopolitics. "Officers and civilians alike need fuller 
knowledge of the economic as well as political uses of man- 
power and natural resources, and of the impact of military 
policies upon our economy." 

"The cure for the scholastic thinness of the ROTC curricula 
is not to load on more of the same stuff; . . . Colleges . . . 
its" and I should be permitted to compress the courses into fewer class 
ecord was room hours and exercises, and to utilize the hours thus recap 
' tured to deepen the meaning of the program and achieve a 
more satisfactory integration with the academic program,' 
says Dr. Dodds. 

Another criticism, which Dr. Dodds dismisses as being "with- 
out foundation." is that civilian and military discipline do not 
mix; military discipline should wait until one enters the serv- 
ice. He points out that the discipline in the ROTC has little 

n actual service duty. "The campu.- 

(ACP)— The Univ. of Buffalo Sepctrum recently printed six 
reasons "Why I Never Joined A Sorority." They are: 

(1) I wanted to do as I wished and think for myself instead 
of being lead around by a bunch of sorority sisters. (2) I had 
never gone into women's clubs before I came to college and 1 
didn't want to start. (3) I had never danced with a man in my 
life and I didn't want to. (4) I didn't like the idea of having 
to room with the same girls all semester. (5) I didn't fill out a 
sweater and I didn't look very attractive in a sleeveless, low- 
cut gown. (7) I am a male.

mermen by a 61-21 count at Boston 
last Friday. 

Captain Buster Campbell and Bob

for Coach Joe Rogers as they each 
took a brace of firsts. Bastes' cap- 
tured the 220 yard free style and 
200 yard backstroke events. Gibbs

home 30 yards ahead of Ets-Hokin 
of BU in the 440 yard free style.

The medley relay team of Joe Rog- 
ers, Tom Lyons and Ed Hanson cap-

from which they were never threat- 

Coach Joe Rogers went into the 
meet with only four veterans from 
last year's team: Capt. Buster Camp- 
bell, Joe Rogers, Ed Hanson and Bob 
Smiley. He was also without the 
services of one of his best swim- 
mers, Don Bell, who hasn't decided 
yet whether he will swim this year 
or not. 

He had to depend on a whole con- 
tingent of untried sophomores. They 
came through in splendid style as the 
results of the meet showed. Bob 
Carson took first in the 50 and sec- 
ond in the 100 yard free style. Bob 
Gibbs as mentioned before took a 
pair of firsts. Tom Lyons captured 
the 200 yard breastroke event and 

A pair of sophomore divers, John 
Bianchi and Paul Baldusuri, placed 
one two in this event. Jack Killoy 
took second in the 200 back stroke 
and Karl Kimball placed second in 
the 220 yard free style. 

Tomorrow night, the Redmen jour-

This germanium refining 
method keeps impurities 
down to less than 
5 parts in a billion 

A new method of metal refining, currently in use 
at the Western Electric plant at Allentown, results 
in the production of germanium that is better than 
99 .9990,995 <;; pure - the highest degree of purity 
ever attained in a manufactured product. 
The need for germanium of such exceptional purity 
came about when research by Bell Telephone Lab- 
oratories in the field of semi-conductors led to the 
development ol transistors, which arc manufactured 
by Western Electric. 

The transistor is a tiny crystal device which can 
amplify and oscillate. It reduces space require- 
ments and power consumption to a minimum. 
Germanium crystals of the size required in transis- 
tors do not occur in nature; they are artificially 
grown at Western Electric. At this stage in transis-

Next is thown the germanium Ingot after the vme refining 
process used by Ween, Electric. Below the togots are 
shown 3 germanium crystals grown by machine, 6 she, , u 
from these crystals, and several hundred ^ernwnmm wafers 
ready for assembly into transistors. 

In this refmmg apparatus, at Western i:\eclrics

Note heating coils on the horizontal quartz tube. 

tor manufacture, other elements arc introduced in 
microscopic quantities to aid in controlling the How 
of electrons through the germanium. But Ixdorc 
these elements can be introduced, it is necessary to 
start with germanium of exceptional purity, so that 
the impurities will not interfere with the elements 
that are deliberately added. 

So Bell Telephone Laboratories devised an en- 
tirely new method of purification, known as zone 
refining, which was developed to a high-production 
stage by Western Electric engineers. 

In zone refining a bar of germanium is passed 
through a heat /one so that a molten section Inv- 
erses the length ot the bar carrying the impurities 
with it and leaving behind a solidified section of 
higher purity. By the use of multiple beating /ones 
in tandem, a number of molten sections traverse 
the bar. Each reduces the impurity content thus 
producing a bar which contains impurities in the 
amount of less than five parts per billion. 

Because of the importance of the transistor in elec- 
tronics, the zone refining process tike so many 
other Western Electric developments Ins hecn 
made available to companies licensed by Western 
Electric to manufacture transistor 
This is one more example of creative engineering 
by Western Electric men. Engineers of all skills - 
mechanical, electrical, chemical, industrial, metal- 
lurgical, and civil -arc needed to help us show the 
way in fundamental manufacturing techniques.

A Growing Tradition... 

Next Sunday night at 7 p.m. the 31st annual Christmas Ves- 
per service will be held. Although most students think of this as 
a relatively recent celebration, the vesper service was first held 
in 1922 as a part of President Hugh Baker's movement to bring 
chaplains to our campus. 
Has Travelled About 

In early years the service was held in Old Chapel auditorium. 
The building* was then 8 true chapel, rather than a classroom 
building. From O.C. the vesper service was moved to Mem Hall 
for a number of years, and for the past two years has been held 
in Bowker Auditorium. In 1951 an audience of 700 enjoyed the 
service. Last year's audience totaled approximately 1000. 

Outstanding Music ,.. ___ 

The former university choir has now been replaced by sev- 
eral choral groups under the over-all direction of Doric Alviani. 
These groups sing traditional Christmas carols in addition to 
other special musical selections selected by Mr. Alviani. Last year 
they sang unusual modern Christmas music. 

Also contributing to the vesper service is the horticulture de- 
partment which provides decorations for Bowker, and assists the 
Chaplain's Council with the work of decorating. 

The Chaplain's Council of the United Christian Foundation 
plans this non-sectarian service, the program order, and the decor- 
ations of the hall. 
Pleasure For All 

This annual service, combined with the popular ( hnstmas 
tree carol sing and Mem Hall coffee hour has attracted an increas- 
ing number of people during recent years. Not only student and 
faculty members, but. many townspeople have found much enjoy- 
ment in these events. Here we have a growing university tradi- 
tion — a good one. 

Letter to the Editor 

To the editor: 

In expressing your views on 
"Grades vs Greeks", 1 believe you 
left out some important facts. The 
first fact is: the fundamental object 
of a university is to educate. This 
is done here at the University of 
Massachusetts by recitation classes, 
lectures, labs, and examinations. I am 
sure that fraternity and sorority 
membership has been approved as a 
way of educating people outside of 
classrooms; approved by fraternity 
and sorority members. 

The second fact is: a student is 
at a university to study and prepare 
himself for his future. It a person 
is obligated to his house and to his 
scholarship, he will find a way to 
expend his time accordingly. This 
situation is one that separates the 
men from the boys. An astute per- 
son once said, "To get something 
done, ask a busy person to do it!" 

Grades are the only just and ade- 
quate way to judge immature people. 
It seems as though a good student 
does not need every possible chance 
to demonstrate his ability but will 
prove his ability in all situations. In 
regard U) grades of students, here is 
an occasion whore student-faculty co- 
operation is imperative. I am sure that 
if the students cooperated more with 
the faculty, the situation would be 
less disastrous. 

You do not suggest that scholast- 
ics be subordinated to extra curri- 
cular activities, you request the sub- 
ordination of scholastics. Is the pur- 
pose of exams to satisfy professors 
or to coerce the student to study? 
The only person to be satisfied by 
exams is the student. The study and 
concentration of students will be in 

The University 
Growth and Outgrowth 

by Mareella Marling 

Lets Fix It... 

Last Friday in an editorial "Grades vs. Greeks" we offered 
one possible solution to the problems caused by a concentrated 
rush period. Since our purpose is not to attack any one aspect of 
of this dilemna but to find an adequate solution to it, we now offer 
another suggestion. 

This week sororities have had five nights of rushing tunc- 
tions, and uncounted hours of preparation. During this time all 
those involved in rushing must continue their classwork, take 
exams, and have papers prepared for deadlines. There are ways 
to improve this situation: 

1 Why can't sororities spread their rushing functions over 
a longer period so that they might be less concentrated? Is their 
any reason why parties cannot be scheduled over a few weeks 
(having one each week), giving girls time in between to keep 

up their scholastic work? 

2 Why not have rushing at a different time— for instance 
at the start of second semester, when new courses are just begin- 
ning? There are seldom exams or papers due during the first few 

weeks of a semester. 

3 Why can't sororities be open to freshmen from the be- 
ginning of school, as fraternities are? This would enable sorority 
members and freshmen to become more closely acquainted, would 
allow freshmen to show more clearly which houses they were in- 
terested in, and would make it possible for the freshmen to visit 
the houses in a more natural atmosphere. 

It is up to Panhellenic Council to look for ways to improve 
sororitv rushing and to make it as efficient as possible for all 
concerned. How about a little deliberation?

Our College Pond 

{AffredatioH to Mr. William Doran, Botany Dtpt., J<« information 
about llu Potkt.) 

When we think of college pond, we think of b sunny spring altera 

of study by the edge, of the dull sound of blade* cutting Ice in winter, the 
noisy, ■plashing, of the annual poll, or the candle flickers of the Junior- 
Senior honors convocation. This was not so in the beginning;. 

Playground For Town Boys 

There was no pond in the beginnings, but ■ brook, whose ■cures found 
Hast of Butterfield, is two inches wide and one inch deep. On a Spring day 
in ik«o town boys could be found spearing in the brook. They also made 
use of a foot path that ran from east to west across the campus. In winter 
the boys would bring out their sleds and elide down the hillside to the brook 
It was a safe place for them to play, since there was no danger of passing 

cars on the highway. 

Constructed 60 Years Ago 
It wasn't until sixty years ago, in 1808, after more than twenty classes 
hibited by other situations that will L d g ,.. ulualc d, that College Pond was constructed, with work in charge <>' 
surely "pop up" if students wish Fred g> Coo i ey , '88. There were those on campus who foresaw trouble, point 
them to "pop up". The students now 
have more than a fair chance to 
indicate their initiative and brain 

Although the student body is ad- 
versely affected— I believe over 113 
of the student body, you stated — the 
question arising from this situation 
is, "Is the student body composed of 
students?" When we answer this 
question, the situation will be solved.

Editor's comment: 

We would like to thank Mr. Snider 
for making his opinions known 
through an intelligent and coherent 
letter. However, we would like to 
point out, or reiterate a few points. 

1. We did not omit the fact that the 
fundamental object of a university 
is to educate. We stated that, in our 
opinion, "education is more than book 
learning", and that fraternity life 
with its various social aspects was 
one method of giving the student a 
sense of social completeness neces- 
sary to the truly educated person. 

2. By "approved" we refer to the ap- 
proval by the administration— not 
the sorority and fraternity members. 

3. During 30 weeks of the academic 
year students in sororities and frat- 
ernities do find a way to divide their 
time rationally between academics 
and extra curricular activities. Dur- 
ing the concentrated rush period 
however, we maintain that it is a near 
— if not absol ute— human impossibil- 

ing out that impounded water would challenge the dam. Mr. tooley was 
quite confident in his work. He said that he meant business, that he was no- 
fooling and that he would "eat his ihirt" if the new ,1am broke. It isn't known 
if be kept his word, but the dam did give way once or twice before the water 

was finally withheld. 

Fish Must Be Brave 
The tish in the pond, it seems, have led a very trying life. Students tidy- 
ing things up for Commencement in 1818 tr. ated the algae in the water with 
ninety pounds of fish poison. (Nine pound, would have been sufficient.) It 
not only killed the algae, but two wsgoa loads of suckers wihch smelled SO 
bad that they had to be raked up before the Baccalaureate exercises. 

In 1947 fish still bravely inhabited the pond water. Town boys fishing 
from the bank have caught bull-head; and there were snapping turtles with 
heads the size of a person's fist. These turtles tared eggs in the holes in the 
South bank of the crosswalk and MM were taken and hatched out. 

Students Km ply Pond 
One morning in October 1947 the pond was found almost empty of water 
with giant mud turtles roaming about while crawfish and other inhabitants 
were gasping. Strangely enough, this was to be the day of the roj>e pull. It 
happened that some unauthorized person had obtained access to the key to 
the dam and had let the water out the previous night. This was not the first 
time the fish were deprived of their horn.-. It seems that it also happened 

The marine life has also found that it must occasionally entertain foreign 
visitors In the past it was part of basing treatment to throw freshmen into 
the pond, and last fall, after the presidential elections, the daring Stevenson 
followers took their quick cold swim across. 

Pond Gets Cleaning 

The pond has to have its "spring cleaning" from time to time, often 
done in the summer and fall, because sediment and other foreign substances 
are carried down by the brook and deposited. Shoals accumulate in the south 
part of the pond and mud banks appear above the water. These are not only 
unsightly, but they decrease the area of the pond and support vegetation 
which can be hazardous to skaters. (You may have noticed that it has just 

had a cleaning.) 

Today, we are grateful for the beauty the pond contributes to our cam- 
pus and for the share it will have in our memories of U.M. ^^

'East Has Awakened/ Nixon Says On Tour 

Vice President Nixon's 40,000 mile journey in Asia has convinced bin 
that "the East has awakened." Along with Mrs. Nixon and 18 aides ami 
newsmen, he has been on tour since Oct. 7. The purposes of the trip are to 
meet leaders of countries, to hear their views and the views of their people, 
as well as to gain first hand impressions from informal trips through villages. 

This week Nixon has been in the six year old nation of Pakistan shak- 
ing hands with Pakistanis who attended colleges in the U.S. and visiting a 
refugee village. On a business level, he held conferences with Government 
official* on the position of Iran in a military alliance between Pakistan and 
the U.S. 

students? We can only give a com 
parative answer pertaining to our 
subject. The all-university averag' 
last semester was 75.03. The all- 
Greek average 75.58. All sororities 
and some fraternities require a 7" 
average for membership. This seems 
to indicate that those participating 
in Greek life are as conscientious a>

Ask For The "Exec" 

British-Iranian Relations Retied; Riots 

The Iranian government has anounced that diplomatic relations be- 
tween it and Britain, broke by former Iranian premier Mossadegh, have 
been resumed. The reestablishment of relations is expected to increase the 
economic and political stability of Iran and to keep that nation free from 

Russian domination. 

The announcement was greeted by demonstrations in the Teheran baz- 
Bar and riots by students, which, however, were swiftly checked by the police. 

Administration Opposes School Segregation 

The Eisenhower administration na.s . ome out flatly against segregation 
of whites and Negroes in the public schools. Justice William O. Douglas had 
asked for the position of the Justice Department concerning the segregation 
in schools case which is now before the Supreme Court. The question posed: 
Are the laws maintaining separate schools in the Southern and Border states 

unconstitutional ? 

The legal issue is whether or not the 14th Amendment allows "separate 
but equal" public school facilities for the two races. Attorney General Mrown- 
,||'s Department of Justice says "no". The Supreme Curt has now to make 
some legal decision.
